As a good rule, find the closest town to where their natural habitat is and search the weather there. It will give you the exact temps, rainfal, sunny days etc that you're plant experiences in the wild. This is harder to do for remote plants, particularity ones from higher elevations, but there is often weather stations on similar peaks.

Look it over and you'll notice that they don't have consistent year round conditions. I believe people's indoor plants often crash because of the lack of seasonal change in one way or another. I grow mine in my greenhouse where the winters are cool and cloudy and the summer warmer and dry, I feel the photoperiod change is also important for them.
