I have this plant growing indoors. It had been thriving in our west-facing window before I moved it to a table for decoration where it seems to be still doing well. I love how unique it looks. It seems hard to kill and doesn't require much effort to keep it happy. There have been several times where I've forgotten to water it and the most it does is let the "flowers" wilt slightly. I definitely recommend it.
