Ficus elastica - Tineke
The stunning variegated leaves on this house plant are shiny and thick, which result in its common nickname "Rubber fig". The pink, cream and mint colourings complement each other perfectly, forming a uniquely beautiful camouflage pattern.
Ficus elastica Tineke’s are perfect as a statement piece in any living area or bedroom. I bet you can think of a cozy spot in your home for this beauty to live.
Plants from the Ficus family are fairly low maintenance. That’s why we love them – they’re easy-going and good looking! What's not to love? For best growth conditions, place your Ficus Tineke in a well-lit area but avoid putting her in direct sunlight as this could lead to burnt leaves!
Be careful not to kill this one with kindness. Literally. If you overwater your Ficus, you may start to notice sad, drooping leaves. Ensure the top layer of the soil has dried up before replenishing, then give her a good water. Fertilise in the growing season.
Misting on the other hand, is something you can’t over-do. Rubber plants love humid environments, so misting the thick leaves would actually be greatly appreciated!

CAUTION: We’re sorry to pet owners, but this beauty is toxic if ingested, so best to keep it away from animals and small children.
