How Much Water?
Episcias, also known as flame violets, trailing violet, or chocolate soldier plant, like to be kept moist, but not soggy. Adding a layer of pebbles or rocks under the soil of your plant can help with drainage. Let the top inch or so of soil dry out between waterings. If in doubt, wait until the leaves get a little droopy and then water immediately.
How Much Sun?
Episcias like bright indirect light, they can survive in medium to low light, but their foliage will be less colorful and they aren't as likely to bloom. If given more light your plant will likely produce more blooms.
Best Temp & Humidity?
This plant loves humidity and prefers a medium humidity. A pebble tray to boost humidity will make your plant very happy. Avoid spritzing with water as the leaves can be susceptible to powdery mildew. These plants will do well at regular home temperatures, but prefer to not drop below 60 F. They also don't react well to sudden changes in temperature or humidity so they prefer to not be placed near heat/AC vents.
Episcias self-propagate via runners. Your plant will produce long stems with little clusters of leaves on the end. If the leaf cluster is allowed to land in soil it will begin to grow roots and will create a new plant!
Episcias are non-toxic to humans and animals, but as with all houseplants they do best when not nibbled or plucked.
