This is the first rex I was able to grow successfully. It is not fussy about temperature or humidity. I grow it in a south-facing window which gets dappled sun in the spring and summer, and full sun in fall and winter. It does seem somewhat susceptible to powdery mildew in high humidity conditions with poor air flow. Otherwise, it is tough, undemanding, and beautiful!
