This plant thrives in shade and medium to low filtered light. Wait until the top few inches of medium has dried in between watering. Don’t let water sit on the leaves, they really do not enjoy it and you can risk losing leaves. Medium to high humidity is needed to keep these thriving. They are slow growing. Give it something to climb if you don’t want it growing leggy. Planted outside, these can get 8′ and higher, climbing up trees and crawling on the ground.
