Light: These plants really enjoy getting some sunlight, and would prefer about 12 hours of sunlight a day with 4 of those being direct sunlight. 

Watering: Keep soil moist at all times, but not waterlogged. They are best watered through a bottom watering systems such as a watering tray, Ensure that your water is distilled, as some of the chemicals in tap water can be toxic to the root systems.
