Hello, Steven Stewart here,
Thank you for the compliment and I'm glad to hear your _N. bical._ is
doing well. I agree with Jeff, if your N. bical. is doing well, I would
stay with warmth loving species. None of the N.bical. plants I have do
well when allowed to get cool, below 60F., some do worse than others.
Take Care,
Steven Stewart
