Santol outdoors in California?

I've found it to be a tough houseplant. I have posted about Santol before..but I never asked if anybody in California has tried it outdoors? Most likely L.A. or San Diego z24 would of course be best case. But if anybody anywhere in California has tried it, tell me.

Do you have any seeds we can trade? I live in Southern California, OC.

Oh no,mine was bought from a Hawaiian nursery on EBAY. It was a gift. It grew fast indoors. Its close to 6' and half as wide. It does need constant water or will drop leaves....something its adapted to. I have had that happen a couple of times...and weeks or months later fresh growth sprouted all over it.
I've had it too long to risk it outdoors unless somebody else can tell me they have one outside! (In California)
