I saw one in a store and was wondering if it can be successfully grown indoors as a house plant?

Probably not for an extended stay ..... as over-wintering indoors would constitute. It's going to need a cold rest period (dormancy) to remain healthy, and it won't like the low humidity and lower light levels normally associated with indoor conditions.

That's what I figured. Too bad, it's such an attractive plant.

Thanks, Al
