    Good luck, dude. Please don't cryogenize it or stick a magnet underneath the pot because it is not going to work.

    Sadly I live in Chicago, so growing it outdoors isn't really an option. Just got 10" of snow today actually...not quite Eddy weather.

    Regardless, A plant of that size will not last long on a windowsill in Chicago.
    I can almost guarantee the same for the fabled hamata that could or
    could not be coming.

    I remember there being a person that grew their hamata on a windowsill so that may be more reasonable

    To be fair I've only seen it once so that's probably true. Maybe I'll try growing one down here in south Florida, I'm sure it'll like my windowsill (yeah right haha).

    I also want you to try it with a brand new plant, right from shipping, thats less than 2 inches across.
    "good luck" to you sir!

    I grow some of my plants outside and others on a south-facing windowsill -- such as the one pictured below. At best, its conditions are that of an intermediate. I do nothing, in terms of heating or cooling -- the least of all being some damned expensive Rube Goldberg setup, designed to replicate Kinabalu, and destined to fail at the first inevitable power outage.

    True, some areas of the country are less hospitable than others; and that grower must make some accommodations; but I have personally seen or heard about more wholesale failures from elaborate, over-humid, poorly-ventilated growing chambers over the years, than those plants less fussed over and treated as the very odd houseplant . . .
