Hellebores are often grown indoors during the winter months because their normal bloom time corresponds with the late winter/early spring and goodness knows we need all the flower color we can find during the winter! Your plant will be happy indoors if you provide average household temperatures and bright light. Place yours near a south or a west facing window so it can soak up as much light as possible. Water often enough to keep the soil from becoming completely dry. I let the top half inch of potting soil to dry out between waterings. You can snip off the spent flowers as they fade. I'm sure your new plant will be happy indoors until it warms up outside and you can plant it outdoors. Enjoy!
