This plant enjoys a bright well-lit space but can handle small amounts of lower lighting. It will thrive best in a nice bright spot. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct light which can harm the foliage.
Water when the soil begins to feel dry, but avoid letting it dry out completely. Ideally keep the watering regular, roughly once a week, and potentially more in the growing seasons. It's always best to test how the soil feels before watering. Leave it alone if it feels moist.
