Scientific Name: Ficus elastica - Tineke
Our Rubber Tree - Tineke comes in a 20cm Nursery Pot.
Gorgeous variegated leaves, in pale yellows and cream, greys and greens are the main attraction of this variety of Rubber Tree. This guy loves the bright light and to encourage maximun colour variations it is important that you give this plant the brightest (indirect) light possible.
These plants look incredible paired with a classic Terracotta Pot as the brown/red tones of the pot really set off the colour variations in the leaves. They are also a winner when paired with our Palm Leaf Baskets.
Follow these instructions to keep your Tineke Rubber Tree healthy and happy.
Water: Water every week during the summer months and reduce to every two weeks during winter.
Light: Plenty of bright, indirect light is required.
Humidity: Average humidity is fine for this plant, but will appreciate regular misting to increase humidity.
Fertilize: Feed your plant every 2 weeks with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the warmer months. Feed once a month during winter.
