Mom always put her plants in her fiberglass tub to water them. Then she had an unexpected illness and left the plant in the tub, which created a stain that won't come out. Help please.

Try a paste of baking soda and vinegar. Let it sit for a few minutes and then scrub with a soft toothbrush.
I've always had extremely good luck with the Dollar Store equivalent to "Scrubbing Bubbles" bathroom cleaner. It's a foaming bathroom cleaner in a can that looks kinda like the old Aqua Net hairspray cans. Just spray it on & leave it set for 10 or 15 minutes, then repeat & after it's sat again, wipe it off with a sponge. You'll be amazed, this spray-on bathroom cleaner works for many hard-to-clean areas. I am never without a can of it in my cupboard!
If that doesn't work, you can use Baking Soda. Just put a bunch of Baking soda on to a wet sponge then buff & buff with your sponge or cleaning cloth. Baking Soda won't scratch the fiberglass, but will buff the stain away!
* If the stain is rust, instead use powdered lemonade drink mix. Just sprinkle it on the area & let sit. The Citric Acid in the drink mix is what removes the rust.
Try lime away. If that doesn't work I am out of ideas.
Barkeeper's Friend cleanser will get out a lot of stains. It is not bleach, but a different chemical that does the work. The can says it is safe for fiberglass. You shouldn't have to scrub hard; just spread it around and let it sit a few minutes, then rinse.
Easy off Fume free blue cans only.
