☺️ I'm so glad you're on Greg!

For me, I keep my plant out of all direct light. It's about 5 feet away from an east window on a wall - no where near the light.

I moved it there because the foliage was faded and the tips were brown when it was getting more light.

I also keep mine in a self watering pot so the soil stays evenly moist. You can tell from my new growth that the plant is happy where I have it. 
@Tariqcannings water with rainwater or distilled water, these along with calathea are sensitive to chemicals in tap water.
@Tariqcannings @sarahsalith got it all covered 💯
Another one here to use filtered water. They are divas and can be sensitive.
Rotate it weekly so it grows evenly on all sides. Some like to be one sided
