RE: [Aroid-l] Helicodiceros potting

Here in central California, we have had some unusually cold weather this year. We went for a whole week with lows between –5C (22F) and 1C (33F). We still are having some frost in any place shady most mornings, but my Helicodiceros (both new offsets and old plants) are coming up and looking great!


Hope this is useful,

Hi Bernhard,
even at aroid.org the minimum temperature mentiones is 0 F (
Helicodiceros muscivorus (Zone 7b Raleigh, NC) 0F)
Probably a typo??! ;-) and you meant +20 F which comes quite closed to -7 C
For a potted plant not bad.

Dear Jim W.,
the observations you describe are very intersting. I should look up what
are the minimun temperatures in Sardinia nad Korsika.
I was already estonished when Peter from Austria wrote in his forum
(http://www.baumfarn.at/treefern/) that his H.m. was doing well on his
balcony in the mild winter we have this year; however they tolerated a
few minus °C (approx. -20°F).
The paeasized tubers I got from you in 2002 grew to about 1/2 inch
length and then "grew" smaller each year.
Your obsevations about planting them horizontally might add to my
failure since I potted them always vertiacally.
Good growing and all the best,
