I got a young rubber tree plant a month or so ago, and it has already grown a new leaf. I noticed the leaf is green instead of the normal reddish color, but I thought that might be normal for new leaves. I did some research, and it seems that this happens when the plant is not getting enough sun. I had it in a north facing window with the blinds closed. How can I get the plant more light and will the new leaf ever turn the normal burgundy color?

Take it to a brighter window and put it closer to the light. A north window is not enough light. The colors will be ok in the right lighting. A little morning sun won't hurt you rubber tree, mine gets a few hours of morning sun everyday.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
