Meet the Rubber Plant family's major showstopper... Ficus Elastica Tineke! This plant is coveted for its unforgettable pink, green, and white variegation.

A member of the Ficus family, the Elastica’s is a great air purifier and is quite hardy indoors. It's a great beginning plant within the Ficus family. Referred to as the “Rubber Plant,” it produces white latex sap which oozes out of the leaves and stems when scratched or cut. The latex can be an irritant to the eyes and skin, so handle the plant carefully and make sure you wash it off afterwards and you shouldn't have any issues. 


LOCATION & LIGHT:

This is a high light plant. It’ll do best directly in front of a south or west-facing window.  Its light variegation means that it requires more light than its Burgundy counterpart. 

WATER:

Rubber plants prefers moderately moist soil. A thorough watering when the soil is completely dry is ideal.
