[ FICUS ELASTICA TINEKE ]
VARIEGATED RUBBER PLANT
Talk about pretty! Big painted leaves with white and green! Shiny and glossy and all round beautiful!
Ok, we have to be honest and say this variety isn’t as easy as the traditional Rubber tree. We find Ficus Tineke a little more maintenance but by no means hard work when it’s in the right position. They are a slightly slower grower and require a bright light yet not scorching. Scorching or high temperatures / harsh hot light can cause damage to the leaves. Moderate watering and regular dusting of the leaves is necessary and good humidity.
A really beautiful plant and worth a little TLC!
A medium sized, single stemmed plant. Measurements to be added tomorrow.
