This is one of my favorite Justicia species. It is also one of the most tender.
It despises cool or cold weather and can die very quickly if the temps drop below 50 degrees F. / 10 degrees C. for any length of time.

Well, it's not such a commonly available plant here...I would assume it's probably not too available there either? However, if you could find one for sale it should be a good houseplant. : > )
