~ I recently asked a question about taking cuttings from a rubber tree and guess what~ 8 of the nine I took have taken root and in some cases have produced new leaves!

Yay

When asked 8 out of 9 rubber tree plants prefer Clonex rooting gel!

thanks everyone~We bought a stack of polythene food bags from Tesco and enclosed the plant and pot and just kept them moist,watering occasionally ~
We took nine on the basis that if the success rate was poor we might at least get one! Caz may sell a few at their Easter fair to raise funds for Llys Nini~
