The Orbifolia loves a bright spot, the more light you give it the more you will be rewarded with beautiful foliage. Avoid direct sunlight as this can cause the colour on the leaves to fade.
This likes the soil to be consistently moist but not soggy. Try watering little and often. It requires good drainage to thrive. Can be a bit fussy and prefers room temperature filtered or rain water over tap water.
The Orbifolia loves humidity and would be happy in a bathroom or steamy kitchen.
