Rubber Tree Tineke
The Rubber Tree Tineke (Ficus elastica) is a ficus variety that is new to the market, originally from India and Indonesia. It is a relatively easy plant to maintain and thrives in bright, indirect light, so pick a place near a window to make it happy.
The Tineke produces glossy variegated leaves that can reach up to a foot long and half a foot wide. The variegation color is cream on green leaves and muted like a watercolor. Like all ficus, the Rubber Tree Tineke is a fast-growing plant that can grow up to 2-10' tall. The variegated variety grows slower.
Pick a pot with appropriate drainage, like the Momma Pots Jewel Tone Gemstone Cylinder. This pot and saucer will provide adequate drainage, so your Rubber Tree's roots are not sitting in water. If you are gifting the Rubber Tree, we can assist by planting your tree in a new pot for you. Pick a card then have our drivers deliver it for you.
