I am sure there are some that wouldn't do as well for me in front of a window of western exposure indoors in the Northeast ...
Just a random thought to be considered
Good idea D. My ellipticum gets full sun (south window) all year (if the sun is out
) and watered 2-3 times per week. I water and fertilize at same time every watering. I use 125ppm Nitrogen MSU formula in RO water to water. I often spritz the top of the bark mix with straight RO water to get all the salts off. The plant I showed is in a 2.5" pot and has been there for two years. It would be a champ for you Dorothy in a west window.
