Rubber Plant 'Tineke'
Ficus elastica Tineke
The easiest of the Ficus family care-wise, the Tineke variety has beautiful glossy leaves that range from green to white to a soft pink. It likes light but not direct sunlight - it's leaves may burn if you leave it too exposed to the rays. Watering is only really needed every 7 days or more seldomly during winter. Don't worry if you see roots above the soil - this is the way the plant grows in the wild so it sometimes likes to shoot a few out of the ground!
Latin name: Ficus elastica Tineke
Size: Comes in 12cm growing pot.
Pets: May cause vomiting if ingested.
