Temperature
Prefers temperatures of 65-75ºF (18-24ºC), and no lower than 50ºF (10ºC).

Light
A bright room with the plant placed in a shaded spot is ideal, without direct sunlight. In their natural habitat they reside undercover within forests with some sun and shade so we need to try and replicate this. Sitting back from a west, east or even south facing window is best.

Watering
It's important not to water these plants too much or underwater them. Over-watering can cause rot and under-watering will make them wilt. To get watering just about right, allow the soil to dry to the touch at the top and then water thoroughly, but much less during winter.

Soil
A peat based soil is best used that drains well. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite is a good mix. They quite like to be pot bound.
