    Okat thanks, but i'm not sure if it's supposed to be inside or outside?


    I just left it outside on my balcony w/ the rest of my plants.

    You'll prolly do fine outdoors with it in zone 10. They'll die down in frosts, but capensis is a cockroach and will come back from the roots.

    That will work fine. You don't want to take a plant straight from the store and place it in direct sun anyway. The leaves tend to get sunburned until they get used to the direct sunlight.

    It's already starting to grow new leaves from its base. However, they are very slow growing but it looks like the plant is rebounding.

    Chaddy,
    They grow for me very well outside in San Francisco. They'll die down a bit in the dead of winter, but bounce back fine in the spring. They're tough as nails!
