This plant was growing in a small closet, using an overhead LED grow light and a fan for air flow. The foliage on this plant was beautiful, and many flowers had developed, but I could never get the plant to set fruit. My theory was that the humidity in the room was too high to allow fruit setting. I left the closet door cracked open, but this room was still warm and humid much of the time. I even tried hand pollinating using a cotton swab, but still was unsuccessful. Plant was discarded at the end of July. I hope to try this one again sometime.
