It was blooming very well. I'm surprised it looked so good because this day it was 80ºF (27ºC) and it tends to like the cooler weather.

Very much a specimen for the greenhouse here!

It's ideal daytime temperature (when in bloom) is 70ºF (21ºC) or slightly warmer.

There it would definitely be a greenhouse plant...as it blooms in winter or early spring.
