Answer: There are many different kinds of Heliconia and some prefer more direct light than others. They are tropicals and like warm temperatures (minimum of 60 degrees in winter, provide extra humidity when your heating system is running) and high humidity, as well as rich soil that is kept slightly moist, never saturated and never dried out. If your terrace is windy it may be too drying for this plant, although the summer humidity outdoors would be perfect. Perhaps yours will come with additional care instructions, or information as to which kind it is. Good luck!
