A good deal Rob and nice plant, yes keep on the dry side, I have killed one by too much watering in winter.
When you plant it out, its worth noting, to try and plant it in a place that is quite dry in winter not an easy find I know!

I have lost 3 from rotted trunks the remaining 4 that are left are in very winter dry places......just saying!

Whilst I agree with Kev regarding wet roots it is important to remember they require cool conditions in Winter also. If you are leaving it on a window sill make sure it does not dry out too quickly inside your warm house.
