She likes to be kept in a nice bright spot, but out of actual direct sunlight. She will tolerate partial shade.
Water her once the soil starts to feel dry, but not to the point she starts to wilt and less in the winter months.
She loves high humidity and warmth, so pop her close to other plants to microclimate or use a pebble tray. You can get spotting on the leaves if you mist her so try to avoid.
Toxic to pets and humans.
