It can go outside in the sunny summer months if it's in very well-drained compost, but cold and damp will kill it and snails will attack it so keep an eye on it if it is outside.
It must come back indoors onto a well-lit windowsill before the cold and damp of autumn starts. Don't water it much in the winter or it's roots can rot - let the compost dry out before giving it a small drink.
They have really attractive pink and yellow flowers.
