The Tineke rubber plant sports handsome foliage, with striking pink colouring and ‘painted’ variegation, making an unusual addition to any collection.
These sheeny shiny little ladies are very easy to care for, thriving in bright indirect light and moist soil. Temperatures in the home should be fine year round (above 16’C) and it’s a good idea to mist these a couple of times a week as they benefit from a little extra humidity. As with most houseplants, you do not want it to sit in saturated soil, so if you’re repotting, be sure to use a well-draining mix.
