Gail,

Columnea preferred in direct light and moist but not soggy growing conditions. And they are not difficult to grow indoors but do not like very dry hot vents blowing on them and winter or very cold drafts either. It sounds like you're growing conditions are just for that plant. Let me refer you to the file websites which may provide some additional guidance to help you.
