We grow our plants sitting in a small amount of water. This plant grows well in an intermediate to cool greenhouse and appreciates night-time temperatures of 8-14 degrees and day temperatures of 22 to 28 degrees. This species likes a distinct difference between day and night temperature and a cold spell during November will help bring on new growths with flowers in January and February.
