As soon as the temps outside warm up and remain a consistent 50-60 degrees or more, preferably at night, and the threat of frost/freezing temps. has ceased. The plant needs to be properly acclimated first. It may exhibit some leaf yellowing and dropping while adapting to the new surrounding but this should cease on its own.
