Ficus elastica Tineke - Big Babes

Mature tubestock, premium and ready to plant!


Ficus elastica Tineke

Here’s a new and pretty houseplant to brighten your coffee table and purify the air.

Ficus Elastica Tineke is a crazy mix of green, cream and pink. The rubbery new leaves pop out in attractive burgundy that fades as she matures. It’s a kaleidoscope of shades just perfect for fans of colour.

Pop one on your desk, brighten the bookcase and bring some life into the bedroom. Tineke suits every room in the house and likes bright light, but be careful not to place those party leaves in direct sunlight or she’ll burn.

Tineke is easy to care for. Plant her up in free-draining soil and only water when the soil is dry down to a few centimetres. Wipe the leaves down if they get dusty and that’s it. Yes, really! If you need any more help read our blog.

If you notice colours have faded she needs a bit more light. Put her closer to a window and she’ll be back to her full glory in no time.

For 85mm tubes: If you prefer your plants just that little bit bigger the 3 pack x 85mm pots is for you.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m a bright and exciting houseplant of many colours.
  • I grow to: I’ll reach 3 metres in height and two in width unless my roots are constrained by a pot.
  • Where to place me:  Bright indirect sunlight indoor please and be careful if you put me in your garden border. My roots can become invasive over time.
  • Soil Conditions:  Well-drained soil, please

*Please note if planted in the natural ground these plants grow very large and have invasive roots so we recommend keeping it in a pot.
