They can handle the bright, indirect light found in a northern or partially shaded eastern windowsill.

How do I water Dracaena marginata Kiwi?
Dracaena Marginata Kiwi likes to stay slightly moist, not too wet or too dry. Too many yellow leaves mean the plant is staying wet too often, whereas brown tips to the leaves mean it has been kept too dry. They recover well from drying out occasionally. The easiest way to tell if a plant needs water is by the weight of the container. If the container is heavy and the foliage is upright, chances are good the plant doesn't need water, whereas a light pot and limp foliage mean the plant needs some water. It is crucial not to water the leaves or over-water them as this will lead to leaf damage or plant death.
