Variegated Rubber Plant (Ficus elastica 'tineke')

The rubber plant is a popular large-specimen houseplant that draws enthusiasts with its rubbery, dark, glossy leaves. This easy-care plant can tolerate low-light conditions and slight neglect and its various cultivars offer a range of variegation and colour if you want to add some patterning to your interior. The rubber plant's large size is suited to larger spaces in your home where it can grow freely; it's perfect on your living room floor or in a double-height space such as a staircase void.

*Pot sold separately.

*As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary slightly.

*Larger pot sizes (Size 4 and above) are ONLY available for Local Pickup or Local Delivery within 5km of our stores.
