Rubber Tree “Tineke” | Ficus Elastica

Add a splash of natural colour to your living room with the luscious green and white multicoloured leaves of the Rubber Tree ‘Tineke’.

Growing Pot Size: Available in 10cm and 25cm

Key Information

  • Can reach up to 2.5 metres in height
  • Gorgeously splashed with varying shades of green and white
  • Thick, paddle-shaped leaves
  • Easy to care for
  • Growing Pot Size: 10cm and 25cm

Key benefits: A Living-Room Feature

Reaching heights of up to 2.5 metres, Tineke has all the wonderful benefits of its sister “Decora” but with the added wow factor, making it perfect to feature in any living room. The thick paddle-shaped leaves are decorated with splashes of khaki green, dark green, and patches of cream/white. No matter what name you give it; Belize, Tri-colour, or Tineke, this is without a doubt a stunning plant. 

Because of its cream colouring, this Rubber Tree will be slower growing than its single-coloured sisters. You may notice that new leaves will appear a soft blush colour around the edges, this will fade as the leaves mature. 

Plant Care Tips

  • Light: To keep the gorgeous marking, ensure the plant has bright, indirect light. Anything less will cause the plant's pattern to dwindle. Can tolerate full sun for about 4 hours.
  • Water: Allow the top 5cm of soil to dry before watering. Keep it consistent; never let the plant completely dry out.
  • Fertilizer: Use a balanced fertilizer monthly when the plant is actively growing. This is normally in the spring and summer.
  • Soil: Use a well-draining, high organic matter soil mix 
  • Repotting: Can be repotted every 12-18 months if desired. Choose a pot that is 5cm larger than the previous one. 
  • Cleaning: Remove dust and debris with a damp, soft cloth
  • Toxic: Keep away from children and pets.

How can I ensure My Rubber Tree plant reaches its full potential?

The ficus can reach heights of up to 2.5 metres. If you want a larger plant, continue repotting every 12-18 months. Once your plant has reached its desired height, keep it in the same size pot with a refresh of soil every 12-18 months. This will ensure the leaves keep growing and stay fresh and healthy. Ease off on the watering if new growth becomes soft and brown; this is a sign you are overdoing it!

Rubber Plant Tineke: Common Problems

Why is my Ficus dropping leaves?

Ensure you are following a consistent watering routine. Sometimes when a ficus plant is moved, it will go into shock causing it to lose leaves. Don’t worry as this is only temporary. If you find a spot with bright light, keep it there.

Why are the leaves on my Ficus drooping?

This is a sign it needs water. Try not to let the plant get to this stage as it can result in edema which is essentially moisture stress. Keep a consistent watering routine.

Common Pests

Susceptible to thrips, fungus gnats, spider mites, and scale.

Shipping and Returns

We can ship to anywhere within Canada. However, it may take longer for you to receive your products if you live in a remote region, such as the Eastern Provinces, especially as we ship from BC.

Please allow up to five business days for your plant to be delivered. If you live in one of the Eastern Provinces, this may take slightly longer, typically around seven business days.

Please also note that tax rates vary dependent on province. These too will be calculated at checkout to comply with provincial laws.

We are happy to return any defective items you may have received. Please get in touch with our customer service team at and they will be more than happy to assist!

If your item is found to be defective or damaged, you will be entitled to a full refund. In many cases, we will not require the item be delivered back to us, however, in some circumstances we may request that this it is. If this is the case, our customer service team will gladly help you through this process.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
