    Well, it's kind of warm and bright year-round. Plus, it was never outside, it was in my terrarium under CFLs.

    Wow. That's pretty cool. I guess your right. xD So far, they've faced a few drizzles and they seem good. The only bad part is is that there's a cold front and I'm not sure if they'll go dormant or not outside.

    They won't go dormant unless it's cold for a long period - I think it would take them at least a week to realise that it was cold and start adjusting to it.
    As for rain... I don't think the rain would be an issue, unless it was sleet/hail/really cold sort of rain, or rain that was so heavy it snapped their leaves. The only other issue would be their soil getting water-logged.
