They can only tolerate temps down to 30F. It would not survive outdoors where you live over winter. Indoors, it prefers low light to mid light. Water the plant when the soil feels dry to the touch on top of the soil. For the most part, houseplants need little care beyond watering in the winter as they go dormant and their growth slows down. Fertilizing is not recommended.
