What you'll need
Ficus Elastica

Ficus Melany
Potting Soil
Fertilizer
There are many varieties of rubber plants, but most have the same care requirements.
Use any well draining potting soil and fertilize once a month in the summer.
Ficus require bright, indirect sunlight or filtered, direct sun (or a mix of 2) for most of the day.
Variegated ficus especially need a lot of light or future leaves will lose their variegation.
Water ficus thoroughly once a week in the summer and about once a month in winter.
I use almost two cups for the larger pot and half a cup for smaller pots.
Rotate your ficus once a new leaf has emerged so it doesn't grow lopsided!
