How to Water
Make sure you allow the rubber plant to dry out between each wearing. You only need to water when the soil is dry to touch and mist the leaves during summer to increase your plants humidity. Wipe the glossy leaves with a sponge when required to keep them clean.
Light and soil conditions
Your Ficus Elastica Tineke will need bright but indirect sunlight, with a temperature above 12 degrees. The bright light will help keep its colours vibrant. See seasonal information for advice on when to repot.
Use a good, neutral potting compost.
This is an evergreen plant that gives you year-round, indoor colour. Only repot a rubber plant when the tree is semi-dormant in late winter or early spring as they can be sensitive to transplant shock.
