It is best not to place your Ficus near air conditioner or heater vents. Ficus are sensitive to hot and cold air drafts. They prefer humidity and warm temperatures

Ficus elastica will do best in a well-lit position with a lot of bright, but indirect light. Variegated varieties will need even more light than their non-variegated relatives as they have less of the green pigment chlorophyll available for photosynthesis.

Ficus always wants its soil to be lightly moist, but they do not like to sit in soggy soil. So let it dry out between waterings. Overwatering is the biggest killer of this plant, and is displayed by yellowing, dropping leaves.
