Place your plant in a location that is neither too dark nor too bright. If you follow this rule, you can literally place this simple and elegant plant anywhere! If you notice brown spots on the leaf, you should move the plant to a slightly brighter location. These brown dots suggest that the plant’s current environment is too dim.
