INDOOR PLANT - Ficus Elastica Tineke in Various Pot Sizes
One of the main stayers in the Arizona Living world as they just keep bringing so much joy and satisfaction!
Ficus Elastica Tineke is a variegated version of the Ficus Burgundy. The glossy, green and white-ish to cream variegated oval leaves make a dramatic splash of colour in any home.
Native to the rainforests of India and South America, it can quickly adapt to different spots of your home and various temperatures.
Not only hardy and low maintenance this plant will remove chemical toxins from the air. A Ficus Elastica is a great option for that gift you are buying and your not too sure if the recipient is a 'plant person' or a great option for yourself if you are looking for something fuss free and fairly self sufficient.
Bright natural light is best, also happy to grow in mid light.
Allow the top of the soil to dry out before re-watering. A full wetting of all the soil every 2-3 weeks during the growing season (less in winter) is best to ensure all the roots can access moisture. Make sure you regularly wipe those leaves down with a damp clean cloth as they can get rather dusty.
WE RECOMMEND PLANTING IN...
A fuss free plant like the Ficus Elastica needs a fuss free pot! A Mr Kitly self watering pot 5 - 10cm larger than the current pot size would be an ideal choice for this plant! Or for pot sizes 25cm and above simply pot the current pot inside a Bornean Basket for some really laid back vibes!
