AS a second hand experience,
	The only time I have seen  Proiphys amboinensis  growing well 
was as an understory to bananas in the Missouri Botanical Garden's 
Climatron, a huge very tropical greenhouse complex. There it was 
blooming and seem to be spreading. I doubt it ever goes below 50 
degrees F ( likely never gets much below 60) and is kept well watered 
with high humidity. Considering its tropical origins this seems 
fitting. Any season chill below this seems ill advised.
