    Well- I moved mine outside this year and it's doing fine. I have semi-sheltered it behind a few slightly larger pots, but it seems happy. Just be sure to slowly introduce it to more light. I put mine out and promptly forgot about it- when I remembered after a week or so the leaves had all burnt to a crisp. They regrew and the plant now has much tougher, waxier leaves. Although, I have more highland summer conditions than SC, and the sunlight is nowhere near as strong- so take with a pinch of salt.

    Thank you Judy. It came yesterday. Potted it last night but didn't know if I should put it outside. I might split it into two pots and put one out back where it is shaded and one up front with the darts in fill sun and circulating bog.

    MH thank you as well for the input. I like tougher plants. :-) will try both locals and see what happens.
