They can take cold nights, say mid-thirties F, if no frost, but don’t like summer heat. Most of mine are in clay pots, and I bring them inside in the summer if it’s going to be in the 80’s.

Cool! Where did you get it???

In the heat the plants will put everything into the flowers and "forget" to grow a replacement tuber. If you don't have side shoots, rather cut the flower. The cut flowers can last long enough to mature seed---if you feel inclined to breed it. The seed germinate very easily on wet sphagnum moss.
