Mine like partial shade and moisture. Any pesticides and liquid fertilizer will kill it dead. I have heard you can grow it indoors, but have never tried it. @christeentranchina

That is where I have always tried to grow it. I think they always started off on a bad foot. They always seemed to be drowning in water when I get them. Now that I think about it. I probably should repot them asap. I always tried to give it time to acclamate to my home first. I'll give that a try next time. Fingers crossed. ; )

@christeentranchina you made me think...I going to try them in a self-watering pot I have vacant. I will let you know if the news is good.
