    It likes it cool, mine is in a north facing window. Sometimes as low as 54 degrees at night, with a rise up to 75 during the day.

    Love them! I've passed on buying them many times. What's the culture? Any tricks?

    I keep it fairly moist at all times, in quite a dense medium, the usual feeding of weakly and weekly, the fourth watering without any feed to flush away any unwanted salts .

    Hmmm, wonder why yours didn't make it, Tami? Mine has thus far been very easy to grow and I really don't always keep it as moist as I should.
