Steph I am waiting now to hear from Hettie. Do you live in town? I am downtown. Did you get my post saying these are indoor plants? Do you have a window that will get a few hrs of southern sun in winter?
I never lived in Chicago, but I had a friend who lived there and I used to visit him all the time. Any excuse was good enough. Loved the food and the music. Gino's East, Rush Street, partying on St. Patrick's day along the river...waking up the next day thinking "was the river really green??" good times.
