    I think 50's is too cold. anything below 55 atleast. 60 is what I would keep temps above. If you hardend it off perhaps. I keep mine at about 65 F and it gets hotter in the window. Humidity is very low probably below 40 in my window. I water tray it every few days and let it dry.

    You also need to avoid excessive heat. Mine was very unhappy and weakened it enough to get killed by mites during the summer. The most it can handle seems to be in the upper 90s.

    I have many ventrata's (due to making oodles of cuttings) so I have experimented a bit.
    One I left out side that survived first frost (accidentally). It had been acclimated to outdoor weather conditions for the whole of the season here in s. Oregon zone 8a. 50f should be no problem, just acclimate as a gradual process.
    Good growing, Jack

    SOregon - about your watering: do you mean you sit it in a water tray for a bit, or just water and let the excess drain into a tray?
