Light - You can often find these creepy crawlers growing up from the forest floor attached to large trees in tropical forests. Since they’re naturally under the canopy of the taller trees, they like bright, indirect light in homes. If brown spots appear on the leaves and  the plant is getting quite a bit of light, it might need a slightly less sunny spot. 
Water - Plants in the philodendron family are quite hardy and can withstand reasonable drought but they do thrive with regular watering. Make sure the soil approaches dryness between waterings but that you’re giving your plant a good drink when you do water. If leaves are going yellow all over, and then browning, check to make sure the soil isn’t too dry.   
Dust the leaves periodically so the plant can photosynthesize efficiently.
*Just like people, each plant is a unique living thing and may have varying needs, especially in their individual locations. These are basic guidelines that may have to be augmented slightly depending on the environment you place your plant in, as well as frequency and amount of water given.
