Maybe you could grow it as a house plant Gail?

I thought they didn't like humidity, threegardeners. I need to measure the humidity in the house. Thanks for the suggestion as I might just have to try it.

Well, I think this picture came from the UK and they certainly have wet balmy weather.

All those plant stands must create a decent amount of humidity, wouldn't you think?

Actually this image is from Happenstance who is here in Calif., not the UK.
