That doesn't sound too difficult to me. ;-)

    *although my two are growing in a greenhouse where temps always drop below 60F, year round, and in fact sometimes hit the high forties for brief periods, and my two robcanbtleyis grow very well. As they say, YMMV: it is the sum of all your growing conditions that dictate success, not just a single quality of environment. (Although you can certain murder a plant if a single environmental factor deviates drastically from optimal!)

    Impressive sir. Looks like you are keeping it plenty happy. I even like the leaf color. You must have found a sweet spot.
