I live in Florida and I want to take it out of my the planter and put it in the ground. Most of my neighbor's have done this it grows beautifully. Next year around November the leaves start to turn red like it knows Christmas is coming. I live in Central Florida seems to work here. What is your take.

I bought one two years ago, just a really tiny plant. I kept it over the Summer outside and it grew well. I repotted it into a larger pot and in the Fall moved it in the greenhouse with my Orchids. Now I never use artificial light in the greenhouse, so the amount of daylight it received was sufficient to see it coloring up/ it bloomed nicely last December. We are having a repeat this year, the plant is coloring up well right now.
