  Re: aroid hardiness (synandrospadix)

I did one inconclusive try with synandrospadix a few years ago (when my
plant was producing offsets, a thing most apparently do not. Mine hasn't
either lately, though it is flowering in the greenhouse right now.).

It was inconclusive because the tuber survived the winter outdoors, and
appeared to be in fairly good shape, but never started growth in the
spring. I suspect "curiousity blight" - I just couldn't help digging
around in the spring and I broke off the growing point. I don't know
whether that did it in - it wasn't a large offset - or the winter.

I really like this plant, and I've suspected it of being fairly hardy for
some time. Needless to say I'm looking around for something irresistable
to tempt you into a trade.
