How to care for this plant while indoors

It is a Guzmania. Keep water in the centre of the leaves and depending on inside dryness maybe mist every day. Water potting mix every 7/10 days depending on dryness. They will not take direct sun as that is what has burnt your leaves.
Feed with a 3month fertiliser and leave the pups on until they are at least 1/2 size of mum or you can cut her out at that stage and have maybe 2 to 3 plants left in your pot. It will be at least 2 yrs before they flower.

It should be okay in that mix. If you repot it, I would use new mix.
Cymbidium orchid mix, mixed 50/50 with a good potting mix, small amount of fertiliser will do the job.
