Ficus Elastica Decora Tineke FICUS Tineke Rubber Tree Ruby ‘Ruby’ / Madeleine / Pink / Variegated- Live Plant / Houseplant

4" pot size

The rubber plant (Ficus elastica) is a popular ornamental plant from the Ficus genus. In it's natural habitat it grows over 30 metres tall, however, the varieties grown indoors are a much more manageable height. For the indoor grower looking for a tree type plant species with attractive foliage which can grow from 1ft to over 8ft tall, this is an excellent choice.

-TEMPERATURE-
Average room temperatures of 60 - 75°F (15 - 24°C are fine. Avoid lower than 55°F (12°C), sudden temperature drops and cold drafts.

-LIGHT- A nice brightly lit spot is ideal, without direct sunlight.

-WATERING- Water once the soil becomes slightly dry to the touch and make sure the pot has sufficient drainage holes to allow excess water to seep through. The worst thing you can do regarding watering is "give it too much".

-SOIL- A well-draining and well-aerated potting soil is needed. 1 part peat, 1 part pine bark and 1 part coarse sand (or perlite) is a good mix.

-FERTILIZER- Feed during spring and summer with a diluted liquid fertilizer every two weeks.

-HUMIDITY- Normal room humidity is fine. To improve humidity mist the leaves when it gets very warm in the summer.

-PROPAGATION- These can be quite tricky to propagate by stem tip cuttings, but you can succeed. Take a cutting (few inches long) and allow the sap to dry for 1 hour. Before potting the cutting in soil use rooting hormone and then provide the bottom of the pot some heat (usually using a heat pad). The temperature wants to be kept at around 70°F (21°C) - 75°F (24°C) ideally.

*** Please note that each plant may vary slightly because there is no two alike in nature. This item will ship with plant, roots, some soil, and no pot if not purchased as a bundle or separately.

**Shipping** Most plants will be shipped bare rooted, unless stated explicitly. Due to the fragile nature, plants might develop stress during transit. Please do expect that plants may have small amounts of damage during shipping, but if it has above normal damage, please send a photo of the damage the day it arrives and we will send you a new one.
