The Rubber Fig is well-recognized as a low-maintenance ornamental plant. The "Tineke" still has that same easy-to-care-for qualifies but with gorgeous green, white, and occasional pink variegation. You must be cautious that this version is not as shade tolerant as the non-variegated form. Yes, the "Tieneke" can survive in lower light, but you will start to notice the white portions disappearing as known as "reversion.
- Does best with consistent bright indirect light-keep out of the direct afternoon sun
- Rotate often to ensure even variegation and growth if foliage
- Allow the first 1/3-1/5 of soil is dry-This plant hates wet feet!
- Leaves tend to collect dust quickly. Gently wipes the leaves once/week for optimal photosynthesis.
