Planted the seed in its pod and it's growing like crazy

OK, so 2 weeks ago I posted my Mango seed query and thought I would share what's been happening.

It's been 2 weeks and the growth is amazing. Even though it has not been summer weather (heat vs. humidity), we have had our share of great weather in the North eastern US. So the Mango beginnings have been out every day and I bring it in at night away from the cold.

So I thought I'd share the AMAZING growth and ask that you reply back whether this is normal. Are the plants (I know they are tropical in nature) hardy enough to brave the winter if they can't be outside at all?

Definitely indoors all winter! Even just a slight frost will kill it.

What a great plant! Agree 100% with Michael: treat your mango like the tropical jewel it is.
