Although it won't take a hard freeze,T.pseudobaileyi will take long cool winters of the bay area and coastal California. Mine right now has a bloom spike on it. They are a bit touchy on attaching to a new surface...again it could be cool temps altering its metabolism. Worth a try with its bulbous base and pin striped leaves. Full sun to light shade.
