What am I doing wrong with my rubber tree?

I have had this ficas elastica for about 3 years and it has been a battle keeping it alive. I’ve gone through everything from possibly over watering to under fertilizing to not keeping the leaves clean and spritzed when outside. Now I have long skinny stalks that I support with sticks to help them to grow straight and stronger. I keep them inside with a plant light and I spray the leaves daily. I’m not sure on the fertilizer so I have not done so.
