Ficus Elastica Tineke
Ficus Tineke produces glossy variegated leaves reaching up to 12″ inches long and 5″ inches wide. Tineke displays striking variegated cream to almost white and green leaves. Some suggest the leaf color looks almost like watercolor.
Ficus elastica Tineke does best indoors with bright, indirect light. It will tolerate lower light conditions but with less creamy variegation on the new leaves.
Indoors maintain average room temperatures above 55° degrees Fahrenheit with medium humidity levels. Consider adding a humidifier to increase humidity.
The Ficus is a relatively low maintenance house plant. Take care not to overwater rubber plants. If the roots sit in water, they can suffer from root rot and fungus gnats can become an issue.
The indoor ficus will still seek watering according to the natural growing season. Water your plant more during the summer months and scale back during the winter months.
