The Baby Rubber Plant will be happy in a variety of light conditions, including artificial fluorescent light. But be sure not to place it in direct sunlight, as this will burn the leaves. Water thoroughly and then let the soil dry out in between to prevent overwatering but be sure to not allow it to stand dry for too long.
