Rubber plantYou may like to try air-layering your rubber plant. A very good website showing how to do this is at the Texas Agricultural Extension Service.

What can I say!
I had the same problem and tried everything including praying over it. Its a wrap. Apparently once the leaves fall out like that they are not replaced. Some say if you pintch from the top it will force the bottom to grow and spread out. Your plant will be short but wide and if you want a tall plant pintch from the bottom and let the top leaves do its thing. This works for roses. Rubber plants I dont know.
