We love the simple style of the Ficus Tineke Rubber Tree. Buy yourself a houseplant with variegated chic! Bring a bit of the rainforest vibe into your home!
A fascinating focal point in your home, the Variegated Rubber tree is sure to be much admired by any visitor. Fresh from the covers of style magazines, its decorative leaves and beautiful looks will complement any room.
Ficus Tinkeke is a variegated form of our ever popular Rubber plant (link). Large, light green leaves are bordered with cool cream markings, spines tinged with burgundy - making this an interesting houseplant to look at.
This large houseplant will be a wonderful focal point in your home - place it in any room where you want to add a touch of colourful rainforest style! Kitchen or bathroom, hall or study - this Variegated Rubber plant will thrive away from the direct sun of a window, but in bright light. Think of the light in the rainforest - bright but shaded by the tree canopy!
The Variegated Rubber plant does better if left to its own devices - just a little water when it gets really dry and occasionally a misting.
We think this Ficus looks really wonderful - if you are looking for tall houseplants then you can train this to be tall and leggy, giving an amazing silhouette that will cast long shadows in the summer.
The Ficus plant makes a fantastic indoor plant gift. If you are purchasing as a gift, we want to make it even better by offering a free handwritten card which will be delivered along with the houseplant. Just remember to include your message at the basket stage of checkout….we won’t give them the paperwork either!
This Ficus is a great easy care plant, suitable for beginners.
Where should I put it?
Variegated Ficus likes bright but indirect light and warm temperatures. If you put it in too much sun the leaves may curl and burn, if you see this then move it into more indirect light and it will recover.
How much should I water it?
Water only when the top 2 inches of soil are dry to the touch, do not overwater. It is better to soak the plant through and leave until it dries out again. This plant also enjoys misting and regular dusting.
Does it need feeding?
You can use a liquid feed once a month during spring and summer. Try our vegan, organic plant food.
Is it suitable if I have pets?
No, rubber plants are toxic to pets.
What size is this plant?
W27cm x H90cm.
