    What conditions does it like? I tried to import one, but the plant just regressed and died after being fumigated

    My minimum temperature is 52 at night in the winter. This time of year, when my heater is shut off, it may get as cool as 48... but mostly is around 50 at night.

    Thanks! That sounds manageable in my grow space.
