I would be most happy in a bright spot away from harsh midday sun which can cause my colours to fade. But be careful not to put me in too dark a place as it will promote mould growth and rot.
Check me regularly and let the top two inches of soil dry out in between waterings this prevents root rot. When you've finished watering don't leave me standing in a puddle for too long.
I love a humid environments so steamy bathrooms or kitchens are great. The humidity prevents the tips of my leaves going brown. You can also pop me near other plants which creates more moisture in the air and regularly mist me.
If my leaves are brown and crispy at the edges it normally means the humidity is low or I am being under-watered. Be careful not to place me near a radiator in winter time. Why not mist me more regularly, and check you're watering schedule if there's been hot weather.
I'm a non toxic pet and child friendly plant.
