    My ficus Audrey had a scale bug infestation. I removed them, treated the plant with neem oil, and check daily for bugs. After a few months, the new growth on top is so healthy! Unfortunately, the bottom is unhealthy, weakened and can't handle the weight of the top growth. Can I cut the top and propagate?

    My opinion is that you could. Having said that, I am not sure that now is a good time.
    You could ask Tetters on here, as I believe that she has expertise in propagating.
    Also, where you live may play a role in propagation timing.
