Origin: Bolivia (South America)

Temperature: Average to warm room temperatures (65-80°F/18-27°C). If you move your plant outdoors for the summer, don’t worry — it can take the heat. Just be sure to bring it indoors when the temperature drops to 60°F/16°C at night. This South American beauty doesn’t like the cold at all.
