Always nice to see a baby pop up at the end of the runners.

Very nice! How is your plant holding up in our climate?

I do not grow this one outdoors but on a west facing window in my bedroom at my moms house. I know normally that the west would cause the plant to heat up to bad but mom keeps her house at like 68. I think the cobra likes it this way.

Explains it's survival then.

This thing survived great in the house over summer but has died in the greenhouse after our last low teens freeze. Go figure! I thought these things could take the cold and not the heat?

Sometimes they just don't do what we think they will. Too bad, I liked the idea of having one as a house plant.

You can't let them freeze. They are not easy plants to grow.

Guess I should of stuck it in the fridge instead. Oh well we live and learn and I'll simply try again soon. Thanks for the info
