    We've got 2 weeks forcasted to have highs in the 60's and 70's, with overnight lows in the 40's and 50's. No more frosts. Is that safe for them? I can put the pot under chairs to minimize shock.

    for all those who think regia is difficult to grow, I have been growing mine on a windowsill for two years and it grows very happily rights along with my cape sundews and others. The trick is intense light and lots of it.

    Do you supplement the window light?

    not at all. all natural light! The plant does grow smaller in winter however, this could be overcome with artificial lighting

    Mine was on a southern exposure windo sill that drew the cold from the outside. I could never get the leaves to be more than inch long, and it was always a pattern of one leaf emerging, one leaf peaking, and one leaf declining. I now have it on the grow rack, with artificial lighting supplementing the window. It's also been feasting, when it had not during the winter. It still has the same pattern but the leaves are now 3 inches long. I'd like it to have multiple peaking leaves and it just isn't happening. Not at all sure why.

    mine appears to be producing a bit smaller leaves now- around 4-5 inches instead of 6-7. we had a warmer spell here for a few weeks, but i'm sure this summer they'll get even smaller (or die all the way back) unless my mom and sister (<--- main issue) lets me keep move them to my basement for the summer. The few I have down there right now are doing amazing well, with the cooler temps and higher humidity.

    Get the Regias down there too! They'll thank you for it by thriving.

    BTW, this Regia was one of my first plants... moved from Cali to LI to BK and back to LI
    Been through some tough times, but it always returned from it's roots when conditions improved.

    Here's an update from that reddish Regia that was emerging from it's dormancy:





    Looking kinda hungry, these plants are quite voracious. Looks like it's feeding time at the Zoo!
