ross, there are so many variaables that i couldn't begin to tell you. i will say that it isn't uncommon for a ficus elastica to grow a meter in one growing season.

Give it tons of bright light, don't repot, don't overwater, and don't overfertilize, and you should have some awesome growth.

i've never seen one bloom, although, i am sure in their native environment they must. i really don't think they get mature enough as house plants to bloom.

I rooted a rubber tree from leaf cutting. I am just curious if anyone else has done so. Most everyone I know has done their rooting by air layering. Do you think the leaf cutting will sprout a plant? The roots go deep, but there is no sign yet. I have had it rooted for about 3 mo.

I'm not sure about a leaf cutting, but I am trying to root a stem in water. Hasn't done much.

when I take cuttings, i usually just take the topp 4 inches or so, and stick it in potting soil and water as if it already had roots. they grow fine that way
