I'd need to put another level on my house to grow them I'd hazad, given teh
apparent size of some of these. I really do not have an indoor plant
friendly house unfortunately. I grow a lot of stuff indoors udner lights,
but will not be expanding to large amounts of Anthuriums me thinks <big
grin>. Might try to odd one or two though.
This list is definitely a big benefit for finding out about genera we
aren't familiar with, and of course finding sources of seed for rare little
beasties that we don't have (I have 4 happy little Amorphophallus lewallei
thanks to Wilbert, and two other cold-tolerant species powering along
thanks to someone else). Wonderful people in these parts!!
Canberra, Australia. USDA equivalent - Zone 8/9
Growing.... Galanthus, Erythroniums, Fritillarias, Cyclamen, Crocus,
Cyrtanthus, Liliums, Hellebores, Aroids, Irises plus just about anything
else that doesn't move!!!!!
