I just got me one of these, They are lovely! Looks like it lives in your porch, still going strong?

Alas, GT, it did not survive the next winter indoors - too much crowded around my windows and the house is quite dry, so it is always a battle to keep them all going...this one just wasn't hardy enogh to survive my neglectfull days I guess. With your lighting set up, you will probably have much better luck! They are nice though, and relatively cheap - so even as an annual, I have no regrets.

Agreed, fun either way. I'd love it to flourish.
