This plant grows during warm weather and is dormant during cooler weather.
The only other thing I can say is that this plant is highly susceptible to
spider mites. I can't keep it alive very long in low-humidity Phoenix due
to repeat spider mite attacks. (No greenhouse here at Castillo San
Miguel.) In a typical centrally-heated house you are going to have lots of
spider mites. Better keep an eye on it, and be ready with the spray bottle
of water or rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) to kill the mites.
