Spray with water once a week for example water every Monday and no other day of the week. After you spray it water, gently shake the water off so the plant won’t have any water left in between the leaves or the leaves will turn brown and the whole plant will dry out and die. I keep my plant either on my windowsill that gets a lot of sunlight or somewhere where the sun hits them but not direct sunlight unless you live somewhere that has a stable temperature and doesn’t get below 50° or rain all the time.
