You were thinking COLD, I was thinking HOT!   My Dad always said that the English language left the greatest 'room' for misunderstanding, how right he was!
>>Ah, so you mean "hardy in MY conditions!" Now THAT is something different. I just cannot imagine a Typhonium surviving -5 or less (that's Celsius, dear people, C E L S I U S )..........

I`m not a Typhonium 'nut', so names escape me, but lots of the tropical species of Typhonium that I have come across have been VERY easy to grow, and some are even or can become invasive pests!    Ones that have been collected in tropical wet areas do not even seem to need a dormancy period!   The ones I have had problems with are those collected in cooler/higher climates, Florida is NOT kind to them.
I guess the word 'lots' can be interpreted in many ways!!
>>LOTS of Typhonium species are very hardy???????? O.k. Dr. Boos, enlighten us with names!!!
