Plant Features

The Chroma® Tineke Rubber Plant, a variant of the Ficus elastica, is a stunning and popular houseplant known for its vibrant and variegated foliage. This plant features broad, glossy leaves that are beautifully variegated with shades of green, cream, and sometimes pink. The colorful variegation makes it an eye-catching addition to any indoor space. The Tineke Rubber Plant is not only valued for its aesthetic appeal but also for its air-purifying qualities.

Caring for a Chroma® Tineke Rubber Plant involves several key factors. Yellowing leaves can indicate overwatering, while drooping leaves often suggest underwatering or low humidity. The plant prefers bright, indirect light; direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while insufficient light can reduce the vibrancy of the leaf variegation. It's important to let the soil dry out partially between waterings. This plant prefers moderate humidity and should be kept away from cold drafts. Regularly check for pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids.
