  Re: [Aroid-l] Typhoniums in zone 8/9

Hi Susan.

I'm 8b in Mobile, Alabama. My experience with Typhoniums and hardier
Amorphophallus is the same as Albert's, although my winters are warmer. We
had only a few dips below 30 degrees, but this morning we had sleet.

For me it doesn't seem to matter if they are in pots or the ground, they
seem to follow the same cycle. The ones in pots don't get any extra
protection other than being placed under benches on the ground. One
thing I have noticed is that T. venosum multiplies rapidly in the ground.
Summer heat doesn't seem to be a problem.
