However, after moving to MI got her a new one (couldn't bring any plants with us when we moved back). It died in record time. My guess is they desire quite a bit of humidity -- and that is something that indoors in the north is not likely to happen. Pity ... such a neat looking plant.

    You know it's been in that greenhouse so long your probably right. Though watering and fertilizing seem simple enough and I know from experience that they can tolerate certain insect pests. AL

    Al, yours are indeed beautiful growing in the greenhouse. They grow very well here in our outdoor garden in the direct sunlight.
