Easy to grow indoors with proper lighting needs more light than a phalaenopsis to bloom but less than for a cattleya. Blooms can last 3 months and seems to be in constant bloom for me indoor here in Dallas area.

Fertilize normally and water once a week. I spray foliage when I have either the air conditioning or the heat on. I don't mist daily but maybe every other day.
