Dear Alberto and all,
	Glad I didn't know this or I might have worried more.

	Of course I grow all of these in pots indoors and well above 
freezing temperatures in my cold climate of Kansas City, Missouri.  I 
use small pots and gave them almost no water from when they go 
dormant in early spring until about December. That's about 9 months 
of the year. The pots sit on a window sill completely unattended. I 
feared they had died, but once I began watering again they started 
right into growth.

	The intense flower color is certainly jewel-like as the name suggests.
