    I grow all my plants in a cool greenhouse...nighttime low 52 F most of the year, 55 F in summer. Maximum temperature is 75 F. Relative humidity averages 85% with a high around 93% and low of 75%. This plant grows in a shady spot in the greenhouse.

    Thanks William, I just purchased this one from Ecuagenera.
    The shady spot I wasn't sure about. The other values are about the same for almost the whole year. I just struggle with the right temps now. We have a little heatwave. Normally never in June.:(
