Ficus elastica 'Tineke'
Tropical tree or shrub with succulent, grey-green leaves having creamy-white margins; larger sizes make beautiful specimens.
The new growth emerges with a pinkish-purple tinge.
Leaves and branches bleed latex sap when injured.
Light: Bright, with some direct sun (east or west window).
Water: Allow the top 30-50% of soil to dry between watering; avoid overwatering or allowing the soil to remain dry for an extended period.
Fertilizer: Use an all-purpose fertilizer such as Schultz Indoor Plant Food (10-15-10) once or twice monthly.
Other tips: Avoid placing near drafts or heat registers; leaf drop will occur if plants are stressed by temperature fluctuations or lack of light. Grows best in an undersized pot; use well-drained potting mix; we recommend Pro-Mix Tropical Plant Mix with extra perlite added.
