In the south, even when winter cold current strikes, auspicious crown brocade can adapt as long as there is sufficient sunshine. The lowest growth temperature of auspicious crown brocade is about 7 ℃, so when the temperature is too low, it should be moved to indoor maintenance, and the rest of the time can be cultivated outdoors.
