    I've been keeping my S. purpurea in a terrarium since I released it from its plastic cube jail cell. It has been about 3 months and itís growing very well and coloring up nicely. Do you think it is important that I set it outside this winter for it to go dormant or do you think I should let it skip this year? Also if I do set it out do you think it will go into shock from the humidity difference? I live in Northern Florida so it is still in the high 60's at night. Thanks,
    Nick Z.

    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.

    I'd put it out on the north side of a building to spare it from direct sun for a week or two. Then I'd gradually migrate it to full sun. The change in light is a far greater threat than the change in humidity. But providing some shelter from wind will help it adjust to the decreased humidity.
