Can be grown in relatively low light levels indoors, though best kept near a big window where it can get some direct sun, or at least bright light. Can tolerate full sun once established in ground. 

BEWARE: If planting this tree in the ground, Ficus elastica will grow into a large canopy tree, and is usually quite fast growing. Make sure it is given plenty of space. Also, ficus roots travel for quite long distances and can do damage to footings, foundations, underground pipes, etc.  Its a beautiful tree, but make sure its planted in the right spot. Or just keep in pots!
