  • Shall I bring this in for the winter?

    • Hi Willa, This plant would have to be in the house like a house plant. Keep it in bright light and allow it to dry a bit between watering’s. I hope it survives as they are a very cool plant! Good luck and let me know your success or failure so we can learn more about this interesting plant!

  • We are in Highlands Ranch, CO 80130
