Re: [Aroid-l] Synandrospadix hardiness???

The hardiness of synandrospadix seems to depend on where the plant originated. Most of the plants in the trade seem to be from Uruguay. Synandrospadix that we have tried from Uruguay were not hardy for us, by my accessions from Northern Argentina have been fine in the ground for many years...coldest of 8 degrees F., so far. They flower nicely every season now. The Uruguay plants also had leaves that were much less glaucous than plants from Northern Argentina. I hope this helps.

Hi everybody,

I purchased a Synandrospadix vermitoxicus last weekend and was curious if anyone has ever tested the cold hardiness of this species. I am in "zone 8" of northern Florida where we normally see several hard freezes each winter. I will most likely protect this plant for now until I have additional material to experiment with, but it would be nice to have one less plant to try to fit into my greenhouse in the winter.
