It will be a help when I obtain some for my friend!
My experience is that most of the cultivars of Z. aethiopica will love it
and warm. It is often grown standing permanently in water in botanic gardens
here and the only problem I would forsee is that it grows VERY fast under
such conditions. There are of course both short and tall cultivars (up to
ft is not unusual), the shorter clones tending to have much more open,
flatter spathes ie. Z. aethiopica 'crowbrough'. I prefer the taller forms
which have beautiful tall, often tightly furled spathes.
