The maintenance of the Elastic Ficus 'Tineke' is similar to that of other ficus: medium lighting, without direct sun, watering when the surface of the soil is dry. Easy to maintain, it prefers to be pruned to encourage branching, but be careful of its toxic sap. It can reach 3 meters high. It is a classic and one of the easiest ficuses to care for. Its large oval leaves are variegated with pale green, dark green, white and pink-red.
