i love these, but i have bad luck with them, it is very nice looking, i have the dark green version, and it grows like a weed. enjoy your plant.

RE: just got a variegated ficus elastica

One of my favorites. I do not find it difficult at all. I would suggest giving it as much light as you can. Sometimes they burn a bit while getting used to high light, but they can adapt. It helps them grow nicely.

If you can put it outside for the summer, they REALLY love that. Mine grew like a weed in the humidity and full sun outdoors. However, I personally stopped doing that because I was worried about bugs.
