I have a rubber plant (Ficus Elastica Black Prince) as a house plant
in the UK.  The Plant is around 1.5m tall and I'm rapidly running out
of ceiling space.  Whilst I have nipped out the growning tip and
subsequent bud development from lower leaf axils, I would ideally like
to stimulate new growth from the base.  Would anybody know wether or
not I would be able to use bud notching as used in fruit growing ?
