It's the kind that gets spider mites when inside very easily, IME. One of a few plants I'm pretty sure was actually killed by them. I didn't know about washing SM's off with water at the time. At your high latitude, more sun may be appreciated than what would be recommended for a plant in FL, start gradually easing it into as much light as possible. I bet you can keep this pretty little guy alive longer than I did, especially if you're on the lookout for those pests. Best of luck!!
