Rubber plant roots

hi all,

My rubber plant recently started to grow some “roots” on the side of her trunk. Please see picture here:

Can anyone help me understand what they are and what I need to do with them?

Do i need to cut them? Are they going to grow bigger and potentially have leaves?

Thanks all in advance :)


  • I think you'll find they are the beginning of new branches and will grow leaves, not roots.

    They are aerial roots, that’s how this plant grows in nature. I don’t think you need to do anything about them.
  • Amazing !!! So helpful!! I will let them grows happily then :) thank you all xxx
