Re: Colocasia & Alocasia winter storage temp


I don't know much about growing colocasia and alocasia, but being from 
England and having worked on Long Island, I know that the summer weather 
is warmer there than it is in the UK; e.g. I was helping grow apricots 
and peaches on Long Island which you can't grow very well outside of 
greenhouses in the UK.
