A dramatically-textured plant with thick glossy leaves, the Ficus Tineke, aka “rubber plant” is a hearty plant that does well in medium light. The Tineke has light green and silver variegated leaves with a hint of pink, making it a real stunner. It can grow up to 100 feet tall in the wild, but can be kept bushy and compact indoors. Rubber plants like bright indirect light. Place close to a sunny window but avoid harsh, direct afternoon sun.
Pictured is a plant in an 8" grow pot, our current inventory is 6" pots, so they are a little shorter than what you see in the images.
Watering: Weekly. Allow the top third of soil to dry before watering deeply. Do not allow to sit in water. Will not need to be watered as often in the winter months.
Toxic to pets: Yes. The sap is also a skin irritant so it's a good idea to wear gloves when pruning.
