Light: Bright, indirect light. Will tolerate some degree of shade; however insufficient light may cause loss of variegation in the leaves. Too much light on the other hand will cause the leaves to fade.
Water: Keep soil moist at all times. Allow the top of the soil to dry out slightly before watering.
Temperature: Normal room temperatures from 16-24°C but can cope with as low as 13°C.
Humidity: High humidity levels are an advantage. Stand on a wet pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently.
