Typhonodorum lindleyanum

I have ordered, and just received, a smattering of past issues of
Aroideana.  Now  I have many questions.  I will try to contain myself, and
just post a few....

In Vol 10, No 4 (Dec 1987) I found a interesting article by Dorothy Shaw
entitled "Germination of T. lindleyanum at Brisbane, Australia".

I have a larger pond that I have used to grown Victoria water lilies. It is
heated with a gas swimming pool heater, and backed up with an array of
solar collectors. While it can get cool here in Portland Oregon (Zone 8 in
the Pacific Northwest part of the US), I can grow all of the tropical water
lilies that I want with my set up.  But I do need to start some plants
indoors, then move them to the pond early in the season to produce seed.

Might it be possible to start T. lindleyanum indoors, then move it outside
in the spring?  Any guesses as to the low temperature range for this
plant?  Do you think it might stay alive if the air temperature dropped
into the low 70's F to high 60's F for a few nights in the summer?  I use
50 gallon and 200 gallon pots to grow Victorias.  Perhaps a 50 gallon pot
of soil will do for this plant?

At some point I hope to build a greenhouse, but it is looking like it will
be 2 years out before I have it glassed in.  I had planned on a *small*
indoor pond.  But after seeing this giant, I am thinking about expanding
the greenhouse pond.

Advice appreciated
