It's been in a west facing window and getting cold from outside as well as heat from a vent below the window. I put it inside for now.

Yes, protect it from cold draft. Position in a warm, bright area. It absolutely hates being cold. If that plant is planted directly in that ceramic glazed container, it takes far longer for media to dry out, so be very mindful and careful when watering. Scale down watering.

Thanks. It is not directly in that. First in a pot with a lot of holes on the bottom and then in the ceramic one.

That is good then...anyways, scale down watering, it is the cold season, and growing indoors it is not getting as much warmth and light compared to being outdoors in summer.
