Yes and probably a couple of dozen factors that have not been mentioned. Try the SPCNI site for basic information on climate because it varies with species. Some grow only where it doesn't freeze and there is moisture all the time. Some grow in the Sierra Nevada's where it freezes and is dry all summer. The interspecies hybrids combine the ability to live in different climatic conditions.
I don't consider planting seeds to be tilting windmills, just a low probability of success. ONly a little money, space and effort is involved. However if you were to purchase PCIs, then you would be close to "tilting".

Then introduce the survivors

Thanks for the info Harold. I'm more than curious about these jewels. Still, prior to beginnin' the tilt of windmills or even making the decision to proceed, I need more info on  ideal culture. Am I facing moisture, humidity, temperature, light (latitude) or other or all?

Few post about PCN's make it to iris-talk. Your response is much appreciated as will be any other input.
