I dug this up from the forest and put it in a pot along with its soil. I've been watering a fair bit but it doesn't seem to be thriving.

What are the best practices here? Does the location seem ok?

Not something meant to be a house plant. Probably needs more light. Gene

Bringing soil attached to roots is fine, but is the whole pot forest soil? That will be too dense. Like Gene says, needs very bright light and still may not thrive long term. But if your area is like mine, there are dozens more to keep trying with.
Plant it and they will come.
