Good old Boulder! This sounds wonderful.

When I moved to Takoma Village, I found I had NO windows that were dark enough 
to keep my pet Hibiscus flowering and strong. I even tried covering it at night 
like a birdcage. I had to either move it to the bathroom or say good bye. When 
it developed those little white bugs, I said good bye. All it needed was dark.
