Have bought a baby one for the front garden, hope it does well as my other which is out back, the soils are very different! 🌿

I've got one as a houseplant, but not really doing much, do you think it would survive if I planted it outside now?

It's fine to plant it outside as long as you can make sure the soil doesn't dry out around the roots. It would be safer to wait for the spring though when it's not in active growth. @bluefox23

Ok I'll do it in spring. Not bothered if it fails as I've had it on my kitchen windowsill for more than 15 years and it's barely grown although does grow new leaves every now and again!! @ublaszko

It's the low light levels indoors that keep it from growing bigger. It does ok in hotel lobbies or office buildings because they have big floor to ceiling windows. Once you plant it outside it will start growing bigger, especially if it goes straight in the ground. In fact, I grow it outside in a container to keep it smaller ☺ @bluefox23

Oh I didn't realise they could be kept indoors! I really love mine, I hope this new one does ok. Thanks for watering reminder, it's so hot today! @bluefox23 @ublaszko
