Keep her in a nice bright spot but out of direct sunlight. She will be happy in a shadier spot too because she grows on the canopy floor in rain forests.
Keep her soil moist but don't over saturate her. Little and often is best. When you water her, make sure you drain out the water from the nursery pot to avoid her sitting in a puddle and getting root rot.
She loves moist air so if she isn't getting enough humidity you could try misting her, putting a bowl of water near her or putting her close to other plants to create their own micro climate.
She's non toxic to cats and dogs.
