- Bright light and for the variegated types some direct sunlight for a couple of hours a day. If the leaves are dark green in color it's best not to provide direct sun as it will harm them, but the variegated types may lose variegation if enough light is not provided. South, east or west facing windows are best suited, but again dependent on the leaf color.
- Allow the top soil to dry out completely and then water thoroughly. You do not want to over water this plant and allow the soil to become waterlogged.
- Best in well draining peat based soil. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite or sand is a good mix.
- Change the soil or top soil annually
