  Re: [Aroid-l] Temperature requirements for Helicodiceros

Hi Tony,

I'm sure you are right, but Helicodiceros can not survive in zone 6 garden
when it hits -20C.....that is how some perished after I goot tired of seein g
them do nothing inside my home for a few years. I've never tried a
Dracunculus vulgaris. If I could find one with exceptional white on the
leaves a a striking petiole I might put one in the ground, but the standard
ones you see "everywhere" just aren't exciting enough to try.

May is only a few months away now and then the plants can go back outside
with some protection from the late season frosts.....can't wait :o)
