Brown stem? Is this okay?

I got this rubber plant and noticed it has brown stem is this okay? Is it possible for it to still survive? The leaves and the rest of the stem are green.
Last watered 1 week ago
This is OK. I would suggest that you take a damp cloth and wipe off the leaves.
The woody section of your rubber plant is the older growth of the plant that’ll eventually be a solid base for a tree which a rubber plant can grow into given time and care.
It looks like a mature stem that is getting woody. The plant looks good. I would dust those leaves off because it makes my ocd go crazy πŸ˜†
Thanks!! I didn’t know that
Haha yes I just wiped it down. I feel the same πŸ˜‚
