Rubber Tree Tineke 8''
The Rubber Tree Tineke 8" (Ficus elastica) is a ficus variety 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, this rubber tree is a fast growing and can grow up to 2-10' tall. The variegated variety grows slower.
