The Rubber Fig is well-recognized as a low-maintenance ornamental plant. The "Tineke" still has that same easy-to-care-for qualifier but with gorgeous green, white, and pink variegation. You must be cautious that this version is less shade tolerant than the non-variegated form. Yes, the "Ruby" can survive in lower light, but you will start to notice the white/pink portions disappearing, a process 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 1/3-1/2 of the soil is dry-This plant hates wet feet!
- Leaves tend to collect dust quickly. Gently wipes the leaves once/week for optimal photosynthesis.
