Ficus Elastica like a bright position in your home. They do not tolerate low light levels. We recommend watering weekly in the Summer, from the base and allow to soak for 10 minutes in a sink with cool water, If the soil looks damp, let it dry out a little before adding more water.
Feed with a generic houseplant feed every couple of months however this shouldn’t be needed for the first 3-6 months. Check the soil weekly and only water if the top 3-4 inches are dry.
The leaves are a beautiful glossy green – keep them shiny with a quick wipe of a damp cloth once a month.
