Sun: Indirect

Place your Ficus Rubber Plant Tineke in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. If you notice the leaves turning yellow or brown, it may be a sign of too much sun exposure. Move the plant to a slightly shadier spot to prevent further damage.

Light: Medium - Bright

Ficus Rubber Plant Tineke thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but growth may slow down. Rotate the plant occasionally to ensure even exposure to light and prevent leaning or uneven growth.

Water: When mostly dry

Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, while underwatering can cause the leaves to wilt and drop. Water the plant thoroughly, ensuring that excess water drains out of the pot. Empty the saucer to prevent water from accumulating at the bottom.

Humidity: Any

Ficus Rubber Plant Tineke prefers moderate to high humidity levels. If the air in your home is dry, especially during winter months, consider using a humidifier or placing a tray of water near the plant to increase humidity. Misting the leaves occasionally can also help increase humidity around the plant.

Pet Friendly: Caution

Ficus Rubber Plant Tineke is toxic to pets if ingested. Keep it out of reach of cats, dogs, and other animals to prevent any potential harm. If you have pets, consider placing the plant in a location where they cannot access it or choose pet-safe alternatives for your indoor greenery.

Pro Tip

To encourage bushy growth and prevent leggy stems, regularly pinch or prune the growing tips of your Ficus Rubber Plant Tineke. This will stimulate new growth and help maintain a compact, full appearance.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
