    As far as tropical houseplants go, one of the most popular and easy-to-grow species is the rubber plant (Ficus elastica). Their oversized, glossy green oval leaves make a statement in any bright, warm room. If you want to make even more of an impression, opt for the easy-to-find cultivar ficus tineke (Ficus elastica 'Tineke'). The variegated rubber plant, as it's sometimes known, often features striking reddish-pink tones on the outside of the green and cream foliage, and the sheath at the top of the stem is also a deep burgundy-red color. Ficus Tineke is grown as a small ornamental tree or bush in use indoors. It grows outdoors in USDA Hardiness Zones 10b to 11. Outdoors trees may reach between 50′ feet tall or more. When used as a houseplant, Tineke grows up to 2′ – 10′ feet tall. Ficus Elastica grows around 24 inches (or 60 centimeters) per year. With this houseplant, growth tends to be a case of slow and steady wins the race. These plants appreciate it if you let the top couple of inches of potting mix dry out to the touch in between waterings. So watering once every one to two weeks during the growing season is usually enough, depending on the light and humidity in your home. As you would expect of a tropical species, ficus tineke appreciates warm temperatures and moderate humidity. Ideal temperatures range from around 60 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
