Ficus Elastica Tineke
A sugary sweet addition to your space. Otherwise known as the Tineke Rubber Tree, this is a stunning ficus known for its tri-colored, pastel leaves.
Light: Bright indirect light is best. These plants can survive medium-light situations as well. Your plant may lose its beautiful cream variegation on new leaves if it’s not receiving enough light.
Water: We treat these plants similar to succulents, providing periods of drought between waterings. This plant will wilt and the leaves will soften when in need of water. Water thoroughly every 1-2 weeks.
Origin: Tropical regions of India and Malaysia
Height: Our current stock of these plants range from 12-18 inches (8 inch pots), and about 2-3 feet (10 inch pots).
This item ships in a plastic grow pot, decorative pot not included.
Every plant is unique! This photo represents the average size and shape of our current stock, some may be slightly taller, shorter, wider or thinner than the plant pictured.
All sales are final, no returns.
On the rare occasion that a plant is damaged in transit, we usually only need a photo of your package to help out. We will be adding a winter insurance option to the checkout process to ensure a replacement is sent to you if the cold has damaged any of your items.
All of our items (local and national) will be hand packed by one of our experienced team members. Everyone at PRINTWOOD owns and collects plants, and is familiar with the best practices to ensure they arrive safely to you. We try to use sustainable packaging materials and encourage recycling for any materials you do not keep from your package.
Due to regulations on customs, we can only ship plants to the lower 48 states at this time.
We will use heat packs in the winter months to give your plants some extra warmth for their journey.

Each plant will come with its own personalized care card, which will have instructions and some recommendations on how to best keep your plants in the condition they arrived.
Cleaning Leaves: Be sure to remove any build up of dust or household debris. We recommend checking the leaves at least once a month.
Fertilizer: Most houseplants can be fed with organic fertilizer during the active growing months of spring and summer for an extra boost. Liquid or slow release fertilizer are best for indoor plants. Watch for browning leaf tips as a sign of over-fertilizing.
Repotting: Most plants won't mind being a little root bound, and some actually prefer it. Always use fresh soil when repotting your plants. Fast growing plants in smaller pots will need repotting every 12 months, and slow growing plants or larger specimens won't require a bigger pot more than every 18-24 months.
