  Re: [aroid-l] Dry heat death for aroids?

Hi Bob,

The plants I would like to bring outdoors include Alocasia macrrorhiza, odora, fallax, portei, zebrina reticulata, and frydek; Colocasia gigantea, illustris, black magic, red stem, and nancy's revenge; and Xanthosoma robustum. They will be under a covered patio for most of the day, but then the sun comes around in the afternoon, so I may try to shade them with my palm trees or bananas. I'm also going to put in a misting system to see if that helps. Any other info you can offer in terms of growing the above species outdoors in Tucson's dry heat would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
