    You should look through this site and others to find info.
    The basic rules are:

    Give it rain, distilled, or ro water only. Do not give it tap, well, or spring water. Any of these waters will kill it.

    Give it plenty of sunlight. Give it sunlight all day long, but let it get use to the sun slowly by letting sit in the sun for an hour a day then slowly increase it.

    Give it high humidity.

    Do not fertilize it at all, that will also kill it.

    That's the basic. Search the internet for more advanced info or you can contact me and I'll send you some sites and more info about vft's.
