Yes, I know that it grows during the "winter" in its native habitat,
which has mild winters and blazing summers, but I was wondering if, in my
temperate maritime climate, I could grow it outdoors during the summer,
and put in a shoebox indoors during the winter. Obviously, people in
climates like mine grow it quite successfully during the winter. Do you
give it extra light? What causes the onset of dormancy: photoperiod
and/or temperature? Has anybody tried growing it during the summer?
