The Rubber Plant has been a popular houseplant staple for decades, with its broad, glossy, ovate leaves and ability to filter toxins from our air. (It's one of the most effective plants at removing airbourne impurities)
Ficus Elastica 'Tineke' is a variety that shows a lighter green and cream leaf colouration, sometimes with pale pink leaf midribs.
Ficus Elastica prefer bright but indirect light, they won't tolerate full sun, and it's good practice to rotate regularly to ensure straight and even growth as a Ficus will tend to bend towards the light. When watering it is best to use the 'soak and dry' method - completely saturate the soil with room temeprature water and allow it to dry out almost completely before watering again.
Ficus are intolerant of wide temperature changes, so keep away from heat sources or drafts.
