I'm not sure highland-ish conditions are actually required for them, not like schizandra anyway, though granted mine are in my tank with all my other highland or highland-adjacent stuff. I could be wrong, but since they're making more of their flower stalk/stolon plantlets than I can keep up with right now I'm prepping some to go in a mixed windowsill pot with adalae, so I'll have a better idea and maybe a spare or two I could send you in another month or two.

Assuming your home is kept below 75F, you're good to go, no strictly highland temps necessary, but you gotta watch the humidity. Mine grow best if the humidity is kept above 70%.

Mine certainly does not get highland conditions. Humidity seems to be the bigger requirement.
