Ficus ‘Tineke’ (Ficus Elastica ‘Tineke’)


Ficus Tineke is a classic rubber tree and favorite amongst tropical plant growers. Tineke is a variety of Ficus that sports a beautiful variegated pattern on the leaves that almost looks painted on!  Just like any rubber tree plant, Ficus Tineke enjoys the same basic care:

Bright light – west or south window is ideal but acclimate it to full sun slowly so leaves aren’t scorched and be mindful in very hot weather that leaves aren’t too close to the glass.

Water when dry – Ficus have rather delicate roots so be mindful to keep the plant from sitting soggy – or drying out for too long.

Provide support if required – Ficus Tineke won’t ‘climb’ a pole but will apprciate a bamboo support.

That’s about it! Ficus aren’t not heavy feeders but be sure to fertilize established plants who may have used the nutrients in their pots. Fertilize with a standard houseplant fertilizer once a month during the growing season.
