Sure! This makes a good container plant and can be indoors for the winter in a bright window such as an eastern exposure, or in a western window but several feet back into the room or protected with a sheer curtain. Keep the soil slightly moist by the occasional thorough watering, do not overwater it. Average indoor household temperatures are fine. It likes a slightly lower night temperature (say 55 to 60) than daytime but this is not critical. It may defoliate a bit due to the switch, but should regrow from the base. Stop fertilizing for the winter, start again in the spring. Enjoy!
