This reminds me - a friend asked my whether there are species of
climbing Philodendron that would be hardy enough to grow outdoors in
our local Mediterranean climate.  We do see a lot of P. selloum and
Monstera growing easily in our gardens, but I have yet to see a
climbing Philo.  Do any of you Philo-philes have suggestions or
observations that might be relevant to this search?  Our humidity is
generally low so this may be the most significant limiting factor.
Thanks in advance for any information.
