He needs plenty of sunshine if not those vibrant colours will fade. Pop him in bright, indirect light. Some direct light won't harm in the morning and the evening.
We recommend you keep him in damp soil at all times. He won't respond well to soil that is wet or dry and both will cause the leaves to droop. He will prefer lukewarm water too so he doesn't get too much of a shock.
Moist soil and humid air are a must and give his leaves a mist to keep them healthy.
The sap it produces can hurt animals as well as humans, so best not have a nibble.
