Hi everybody,
I live in South Africa and have grown a fair amount of Anthuriums over the
past year since I have joined you guys.
With winter on our doorsteps I would like to know how much cold can
Anthriums take as a general rule - if there is such a thing.
I stay in the Durban area and temperatures can go down in extreme cases to
about +5 deg C (+- 40 F). Would this be a problem for Anthuriums?
Many thanks

There is a lot of variabilty regarding cold hardyness. Plants from dryer
habitats tend to be preadapted to cold conditions. For example A. sect.
Pachyneurium seems to be better adapted than other groups. That would
also be true of high montane Andean species as well.
