Can I keep this plant outdoors?

I wish I could help with that answer, honey, but I don’t have an outside my apartment is inside with no balcony so all my plants are inside grown
Absolutely! Just make sure she gets a good amount of shade time. Mine loves it outside.
What I’ve read about it is that it shouldn’t be exposed to temps lower than 50F due to it being a tropical plant but can survive most drops in temperature, however it can loose leaves. As for in the summer I keep mine in a partially shaded area with bright morning sun and it does great! hope this helps!
Mine just recently started turning yellow.. idk if I burned it up or not.. But it seems to be doing okay when I break up the direct sunlight down to an hour or two at a time. I live in Central Nebraska though
