i have never tried but from what i have read its distinctly tropical and will rot outside here in a matter of days.it needs minimum tempreture of 15c day and night year round and 100% humidity.sorry to be the bearer of bad news! :D

I've never heard of it, let alone seen it. if it is grown here, it must be down south.
