Light: Bright light, but no direct sunlight and shaded for a good part of the day in the summer, if it's warm and humid enough.
Watering: Water a little but often - keeping the soil moist at all times. Water much less during winter.
Soil: Use a fast draining peat based potting mix.
Fertilizer: Feed with a diluted balanced fertilizer from spring every 2 weeks and stop at the end of August then start again at the beginning of spring.
Re-Potting: These can be re-potted every spring but only use a pot one size bigger if it's become very root bound.
Humidity: These plants like slightly higher humidity levels than many other plants. You may need to raise the humidity levels in a room artificially by placing the plant in a humidity tray with pebbles or use a humidifier.
Propagation: These are usually propagated by dividing the plant when it's being re-potted in spring.
