they defantly will color deeper if its cooler but they need to be fed well however they go throw a dry peroid in the winter so dont over water them let it dry conpleatly out betwean waterings if its in a low light room they are exstreamly suseptibal to rot when they are young and even when older but less so dont water directly on the leafs or stems pour the water just on the soil make sure it gets plenty of sun light to keep it from going dormet if you let a smal plant go dormet its likly to die do to a lack of corm size IE not enough anergy to make it threw the winter i hope that helps they grow in the high lands of ethopea and all along the easter parts of africa at farly high altituds so they can take some cold they will servive out in the open in zones 8 thew 10 but they do beter if they get that low of about 50 in the winter going dormet
