    If you can grow P. heterophylla then you can grow gypsicola, care is pretty similar, They are even both late starters not waking up until long after all your other plants are in growth, usually at the end of April or start of May.

    I'd just go for it -- That's what I did. I used everything I'd heard about growing them (as a guide only). I kept a careful eye on them (I say them, because I immediately broke off many older leaves and they budded quickly), those that looked to be struggling were the ones I tried different things on. Eventually, I discovered how they grow best in my conditions. And its somewhat different than the cultural conditions other, successful growers of this species have described.

    One environmental factor that predominates for me, is to give them as much light as possible without causing them too much damage as they adjust to it (I use artificial light - fluorescent). A problem can be keeping them alive until they grow vigorous and strong.

    I have 3 growing on my windowsill. I have had them there over a month and a half now, and they are doing great.
