Some combination of the following:

-- open shade with plenty of blue sky overhead, not direct sun
-- porous media (more or less like: 2 sand, 1 perlite, 1 peat/coir)
-- media not soaking wet, more like a squeezed-out sponge, just damp to the=
-- under a clear plastic dome -- but raise it once a day at least for airing
-- water with a trace of Clorox in it to fight dampoff fungus
-- keep water off leaves and stems
-- bottom heat
-- possibly try an anti-transpiration spray like Cloud Cover or Wilt-Pruf (=
 haven't used them, but if wilting is a problem, they might be the answer, =
rather than raising humidity, which can foster botrytis/mold)
-- supplication to one's favorite deity.
