We have been growing this in an atrium (inside, but in soil/ground) for about a year. It has grown from about 3 feet to about 7 feet tall. Recently, it developed about 12-15" tall sprigs of blooms at the top of each "trunk" - these sprigs of small off-white/cream colored flowers exude a very, very sweet fragrance. The aroma is intoxicating and fills the house. These blooms seem to be fading, after about 10 days. Our limeights grow against a wall, with glass roof overhead. We maintain about 60% humidity. We have had very little lower leaf loss. They don't seem to attract insect pests as do other plants in our atrium.
