For what it's worth mine grow in a unheated hoop house in 1 gallon black
plastic nursery pots, they saw temperatures of 17 deg f last year and 19
deg f this year for several days in a row. Its blooming right today and has
been open for about 4 days. I'm guessing the next month is its most
vulnerable time to exposure to freezing temperatures?
