John - I am in zone
6 here, and have to bring them in before the first frost hits. This one has been in a SW window, and only has this one bloom on it so far. Two others are in my bedroom in a south facing window - they both had spider mites very badly recently, but I hosed them down in the shower. One has numerous buds on it, but they are small. The other only had 1 bud, but I missed it when I had to go to Florida a few weeks ago to take care of my mom in the hospital. I forgot to ask my husband to water my plants
, and that's something he would never think to do on his own. So... the 1 bud was just opening when I left, and was dried, black when I returned. That is the 1 plant
that lost many leaves when dried out, and I'm hoping it will recover now that I'm back to baby it.
