  Need suggestions for patio aroids
From: kohrla <rozgold at pacbell.net> on 2004.09.25 at 21:23:18(12226)
Hi folks!

I am a very novice aroid grower, and I don't have a lot of space, so I do a
lot of growing in containers on a patio outside my apartment. I would like
to expand my collection, but I have some challenging growing conditions. I
live in Los Angeles, and my patio receives very strong direct morning sun.
Unfortunately, because of the position of surrounding apartment buildings, by
early afternoon, the patio is in almost completely in shade. As a result, in
winter and much of spring, the patio doesn't get too many hours of light.
This has been a real problem in spring for me growing anything that requires
a lot of hours of light to get going.

So I'd love to find some aroids that meet the following growing criteria:
--can handle strong direct summer sun, but don't need lots of hours of sun in
the spring;
