Light: Need plenty of bright light. Direct sunlight for at least a few hours a day is recommended, however avoid the scorching midday sun as this will cause leaf fade. They can tolerate some degree of shade, but never for prolonged periods of time.
Water: Needs to be in damp soil at all times. They do not respond well to soil that is wet or dry, and either will cause leaf drop. Watering with lukewarm water is recommended.
Temperature: They need warmth. They are happy in temperatures from 18-29°C but can cope with as low as 15°C, however you must avoid draughts.
