I live in Wisconsin, but the sun is strong here in the summer- I made two
shade houses on the cheap- one using a wire dog kennel with a shade cloth on
top and sides, the other using a carport setup- for less than $100 you can
get a 10x20 set up, and put shadecloth on it.

The plants I would like to bring outdoors include Alocasia macrrorhiza,
odora, fallax, portei, zebrina reticulata, and frydek; Colocasia gigantea,
illustris, black magic, red stem, and nancy's revenge; and Xanthosoma
robustum. They will be under a covered patio for most of the day, but then
the sun comes around in the afternoon, so I may try to shade them with my
palm trees or bananas. I'm also going to put in a misting system to see if
that helps. Any other info you can offer in terms of growing the above
species outdoors in Tucson's dry heat would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
