I don’t want to move it outside 🙁 I love this beautiful plant and want to keep it Indoor but I don’t want it to become unhappy and unhealthy by keeping it in the same spot. Will it just adapt?

The plant will grow to the size set by its genetics, for the most part. If this particular cultivar has a mature size that is too large for your area, then you will have to think about other options.

They can be kept the shortest with proper lighting. The more light, the better. If your area is too dimly lit, the plant can stretch in response and in search of more light.

Keeping it in the smallest container that it will remain happy in will also keep it as manageable as possible.
