I just bought one of these plants and really wanted to put it out on my screened in porch. I live in Georgia and it has been in the high 80s/90s. It is listed as a houseplant but do you think it would be ok to put it out during the summer months? I have no experience with these plants and just got it because it looked different. Thanks for your help.

If it's been used to being in a shaded area, I wouldn't introduce it to direct sun right off the bat.

Move it to a sunnier place for a bit, and let it get used to outside living and just watch it.

I have a big cactus I put outside all summer, but it will burn if it's in the direct sun right away.
