    Hi, I managed to get one of these this year, quite late in the year so it is still relatively small. I was planning to treat it as a house plant for this winter but wondered what other options there are. I have a greenhouse but it is not heated, fine for Cannas and Dahlia Imperialis tubers but I think it would be too cold for this beauty. Any advice will be much appreciated.

    I’ve found the best way is to keep it above 7°C and keep the soil on the drier side. If you treat it as a houseplant and it continues to grow then it will need a little more water. 👍
