Hello all!

Our Development Office wants me to try and revive their rubber plant.
"All of a sudden it started losing leaves and the stems shriveled."  If
anyone moved it to a colder place, quit watering it, etc., no one is
fessing up.  Anyone have ideas as to what could have happened and how to
make it a happy plant again?  What plant food would be best?

Also, if anyone knows of a good reference to have around for care of
house and office plants I would love to get a copy - and avoid e-mails
like this.
