Water: Medium. Keep the soil moist. This is not a drought-tolerant indoor plant, but it is relatively forgiving if you forget to water it from time to time. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges.

Sunlight: Medium to Bright. Never allow this plant to stand in the direct sunlight—the leaves will burn.  It can survive in medium light but avoid a dark corner. 

Placement: A bathroom or kitchen is an ideal location because of the extra humidity.
