Ficus elastica 'Tinke'
Origin: India, Nepal, Myanmar, China, & Malaysia.
Your tree may be a small plant right now, but with a bit of care it will be well on its way to being a small tree, bringing life and color to any space. In its natural habitat it grows over 30 metres tall, but yours will stay at a more manageable height between 1 to 8 feet. Rubber trees come in a variety of colours. 'Tinke' is a newer variety with beautiful white and green variegated leaves that sometimes finish pink. If you ensure you provide it with lots of bright, but indirect lighting your rubber tree should be relatively easy to care for. Allow it's soil to dry slightly, then water deeply allowing excess to drain. Rubber trees do not like being over watered. If its leaves start to look dirty, simply clean them gently with water and a cloth.
