Growing Neem Indoors

I have ordered a neem plant from you and would like detailed instructions for growing it in a "glass room" (conservatory) with 55 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit night temperature and flucuating warmer day temperature, typical Vancouver weather conditions.

Neem is a tree from India and Africa. It requires full sun, and room for the roots to grow. The temperature range is fine. Give it occasional feedings with organic fertilizer. Over the winter months, when the plant is likely to be semi-dormant, hold off on the fertilizer and take extra care not to overwater. During the summer you can set the pot outdoors (but do not plant it in the ground).
