Plant / Ficus Tinneke - Rubber Plant
Ficus elastica 'Tineke'
APPEARANCE: Popular indoor plant, or subtropical rainforest tree, with very large thick glossy leaves each with a central rib. Tineke is a variegated form, green leaves are patterned with cream and brown-pink.
USE IN: Easycare indoor, container or tropical plant. Needs a sheltered frost-free spot and a big pot when mature.
CARE: Mulch and water with a seaweed based fertiliser on planting, follow with regular watering until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Apply a slow release fertiliser twice yearly and protect from frost. Potted plants may need extra feed and a repot into fresh soil once a year. Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to keep them healthy and dust-free; plants grown indoors will appreciate an occasional mist spray to increase humidity.
