The new rubber plant every plant lover has on their tick list. Like the 'Tineke' it has the wonderful camo patterning, but with a spectacular tinge of pink!

As hardy as old rubber. This house trendsetter is suited to positions of light sun and partial shade. Perfect for cheering up the corner of your home office.

Best space & place
A spot with bright light is key to keep this plant thriving, but not direct sun as that will burn the leaves. 

When to water & feed
Water only when the soil is dry to the touch. Reduce the watering in winter. Partial to a light misting. 

Need to know
Does not like a draught, so keep in a room with a steady constant temperature of 12 degrees and higher.
