Ficus elastica - Tineke
South Island Delivery Only.
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 compliment each other perfectly, forming a uniquely beautiful camouflage pattern.
Ficus elastica Tineke’s are perfect as a statement piece for home or office.
Plants from the Ficus family are fairly low maintenance. That’s why we love them –
Place your Ficus elastica Tineke in a well-lit area but avoid putting the plant in direct sunlight as this could lead to burnt leaves!
Be careful not to kill this one with kindness. If you over water your Ficus you will start to notice the leaves begin to droop. Ensure the top layer of the soil has dried up before replenishing, then give your plant a good water. Fertilise in the growing season.
Your plant will thrive in humid conditions so ensure you mist regularly during the warmer months.

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.
