Ficus elastica 'Tineke'
Ficus elastica 'Tineke' is a variegated cultivar of the classic Rubber Tree, whose leaves are splashed with white, sage and emerald green, often with pink central veins. The new leaves sometimes emerge with bright pink that fades to cream as it hardens off. Native to South Asia, Ficus elastica is a member of the fig genus. Its milky sap was originally used to make latex, which is why this plant is often called the Rubber Tree. Its uniquely colored foliage make the 'Tineke' cultivar a favorite indoor tree for anyone who appreciates variegation.
The plant featured in the listing photos is in a 6" pot.
• Light: Provide bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Ficus can be finicky plants, and tend to drop leaves when stressed. Avoid moving your plant once positioned

The plant came wrapped up well in recyclable paper. It was a little thirsty, but otherwise survived the mail without any harm. It's now happy in my kitchen window. I love it!
The whole experience has been fantastic- the plant arrived in great condition (even during a cold week) and is thriving in a sunny window. I'm excited to watch her grow! I'll definitely be ordering from Pistils again.
Happy and Healthy
I received a happy and healthy plant. I did not expect that there will be 3 plants in the pot. I’m seeing new growth on each of them. Thank you!
