I will try to post a picture of the potted plant.
    Great,looking forward your photo make sure more light at least 40 to 50% filter light.

    Thanks, Amey. Yeah. I have potted it similarly and water it daily. Need to wait and see if it survives the low humidity (~15%) + the summer heat in bangalore as I do not have a Green house. Kept it next to my other plants, hoping that there might be additional humidity from them.
