Top tip

To keep your Rubber Fig's leaves glossy, wipe them gently with a damp cloth to remove dust and debris. This will help the plant photosynthesize better.

About Lil' Rubber Fig

The Rubber Fig, scientifically known as Ficus Tineke, is an indoor plant cherished for its glossy, rubbery leaves that add a touch of nature and elegance to any space. Native to Southeast Asia, this indoor beauty is easy to care for, making it a popular choice among plant enthusiasts.

To keep your Rubber Fig thriving, place it in bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight as it may cause leaf scorching. This moderate grower can reach a maximum height of 2.5m, and its vibrant green foliage provides a refreshing and calming atmosphere in your home.

Watering the Rubber Fig should be done when the top inch of soil feels dry. Be cautious not to overwater as it can lead to root rot. A well-draining potting mix will help maintain proper soil moisture levels. As with many Ficus plants, the Rubber Fig is toxic to pets and children, so it's best to keep it out of their reach.
