I was among those getting a 'Hercules' a few years back.  I wasn't sure it
would do well outside so I kept it with my orchids the first year.  It just
got smaller and smaller.  I guess it wanted more light than the fluorescents
produced.  Now it is outside by the Chesapeake and seems to
be surviving but is still in the process of coming back--about a foot tall
I guess.  In the bed with it are a couple of Callas which are doing 
spectacularly well.  The soil in Deltaville is very sandy.
