Mine has dropped every leaf, but I am still keeping it damp. I cut mine back to about 4ft. I hope it comes back out. The room is low 60s.

I have mine in the GH this year we will see how it does. My Dad puts his in the basement and lets it go semi dormant. Drops all it's leaves and he stops watering it. Once a month he goes down and gives it a little drink but not much and not often. There are basement windows so it isn't in total darkness but it is a low light area and he puts it on a shelf away from the windows.
