Unfortunately, these can take awhile to ripen. You can bring them inside to a west facing window, but if the leaves start to drop too much at a time, then you will have to supplement light. I find that the household 100 watt LED will allow for plant growth. You will likely need two or three about a foot from the plant but it will keep it happy.

Ideally a horticultural grade light is best, but in a pinch, these will work just fine.
