Variegated Rubber Plant (ficus elastica Tineke)
A popular indoor variety of the rubber plant known for the striking variegation of its leaves, with creamy midribs and marbled white and pale green margins that look almost painted on.
Rubber houseplants are related to the India Rubber Tree, which was historically used as a natural source of rubber, and still contain a sticky sap that should be kept away from curious housepets.
Delightfully low maintenance, the rubber plant only requires watering once the soil has dried out completely. This arrestingly patterned Tineke rubber plant requires more light than the classic rubber plants we stock, and will do best in bright, indirect light.
