Here we are folks! Spathiphyllum might have survived but your plants, A,
andreanum and a few might not cry too much but Lester, for THEIR sakes, pray
the others don't get a chill wind as well. If there's no nasty bright sun,
(especially at night), put styrofoam under pots and cover with horticultural
fleece or fine netting. You'll soon have your own answer! You could
always migrate to Southern Ireland. 2.00 am 62F, daytime 75F plus here

| It's already getting to be late in the growing season, but temperatures on

| Can any of the following aroids tolerate being outside without

| Here's the list:
| Alocasia micholitziana
| Alocasia lowii
| Alocasia cuprea
| Alocasia "Blackie"
| Alocasia sanderiana
| Alocasia reversa
| Alocasia "Hilo Beauty"
| Alocasia longiloba magnifica
| Anthurium crystalinum
| Anthrurium clarinervium
| Anthurium andreanum
| Anthurium "Crystal Hope"
| Xanthosoma braziliensis (or some minor variation of that species name)
| Xanthosoma variegata "Albo striata lutea"
| Will any of the above be damaged by nights in the lower 50s if they don't
| warm up much during the day?
