* How long does it take to really start noticing a decline in the quality of the plant, and is the reddish color the best thing to keep an eye on?
* Would it be better to try to supplement with a fluorescent light or to move it outdoors for a couple of hours a day? The way our patio is set up combined with my preschooler means that it most likely would get knocked over so I'm trying to avoid both that and it frying later on.
* Alternatively, I might be able to find it a bit of temporary space upstairs on a dresser but then have to protect it from the cat. I was thinking of trying to put an inverted plastic bottle over top of the pot (an almost terrarium) but didn't know if I'm too much of a beginner to be able to pull it off.
