Dear Tony,

Good luck! (as the corus of the song 'Dream Lover' by the Everly Brothers
plays in the back ground) I don`t think that Xanthosomas can or ever will
withstand near freezing temps.---better chance of penguins living in Lk.
Okeechobee or Elephants at the N. Pole, but we can try, correct?!
These tropical plants SEEM fine with a short 'blast' of low temps., but IF
they don`t turn to mush right away, the cold damage is horrific after a few
days/weeks, the tissues die, and then they die.
Hope to see you soon!
