RUBBER PLANT 'FICUS ELASTICA TINEKE' 10" Grower Pot
Ficus Elastica 'Tineke' is coveted for its unforgettable pink, green, and white variegation. A member of the Ficus family, the Elastica is a great air purifier and is quite hardy indoors. It’s referred to as the “Rubber Plant” due to the fact that the plant produces white latex sap which emerges oozes out of the leaves and stems if they're 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 afterward and you shouldn't have any issues.
Ficus Elastica prefer BRIGHT INDIRECT LIGHT.
LOCATION & LIGHT:
Ficus are high light plants. It’ll do best directly in front of an east-facing window or 5’-10 away from a south or west-facing window’. It does not like to be subjected to direct sun and can burn if in direct contact for too long. This variegated plant requires a bit more light than its Burgundy relative.
Rubber plants prefer moderately moist soil. A thorough watering when the top 2"-3" of the soil is dry is ideal.
