Here in Huntington Beach Ca. not too often but it sometimes can get into the 40's in the night and we have them everywhere, this shows they have a bit of tolerance to colder weather.
Most are rainforest understory plants and require bright shade, which puts them in the category of low light houseplants; same goes for if they’re grown outside. Few will tolerate full sun, especially in warmer climates but not too often.
