    Hey Zach,

    Pygmies like the dramatic change in temperatures. Outdoors in my area the temperatures may be the 80's but the nights are always cool year-round from 40F-65F.
    What size pot are you planning to grow these plants in?
    They have very deep roots and need a deep pot(preferably 5in+). Mines are grown in peat:sand 1:1 with a little perlite. I grow them outdoors under 50% shade all day. The larger plants I sent you have been grown outdoors for the last two years and are well adapted to outdoor growing.

    Shade = not direct sunlight.
    That would be tough moving them in and out everyday!

    You can permanently grow these outdoors under 50% shade cloth.
