How to care
Rubber Plants can live in medium, indirect sunlight to dappled sun. Prolonged exposure to bright direct sunlight may burn and scorch their leaves.
Allow the soil to dry out between waterings, especially during the winter when you may only need to water your plant fortnightly.
Rubber Plants enjoy a humid environment, but can withstand average humidity levels. We encourage misting or clustering your plants to help raise humidity.
Sad Plant Signs
Falling leaves: indicate your Rubber Plant has suffered from low humidity levels. Browning, drooping leaves: indicates your plant has been overwatered.
Characteristics Detoxifying power
Named after the white latex that courses through its veins formerly used to produce natural rubber, the Rubber Tree ‘Tineke’ originates from Indochina, through Southeast Asia to Indonesia. This select variety of Ficus Elastica features large variegated pale green leaves with decorative yellow borders, which will make a perfect addition to design-led homes. In addition, this Rubber Tree has strong air-purifying powers. Fun planty fact: In some parts of India the rubber tree’s incredibly sturdy roots have been used to make ‘living bridges’ to allow crossings over small rivers.
