Can't help with you question, but I have one for you.
Are you able to harvest down in zone 7?

Cool deal man. My DC is just now throwing a bud =[ Not that it matters I would not be able to harvest anyways.

Always nice to see some nanners hanging.

Happy Growing!

Is in a container? I wouldn't be too concerned with low morning temperatures since it gets warm during the day. It will make it take longer to do its thing, yes, but if you are going to put it in a greenhouse it might be too early yet. I guess it depends on how warm it's there during the day.

I've got a bunch of 'em all over the place but none of them have bloomed this year yet and probably won't.

In my experience, 50's and even 40 should be okay. Don't let it get below 40 though.
