Hiyer, Don!

What you suggest should work. Keep it cool to warm in your glass house. It should do fine. I grow this species along with A. italicum, A. hygrophilum, A. dioscoridis, and A. sintenesi outdoors year 'round here in Kansas ( I live between Lawrence, Oskaloosa and Tonganoxie). I just keep it under lots of mulch during the winter and it comes up fine in spring.

Good luck!

Last summer, I received some seed of Arum cyrenaicum.  I planted the seeds in an open, free draining medium and left them pretty much alone until this fall, when moving plants inside for the winter (we get down to –10F, -23C),  I observed one seed germinating (see attachment).  Obviously, it wouldn’t survive outdoors, as its temperature requirements suggested as USDA Zone 9 and above.  

Any suggestions as to the best way to keep this through the winter?  I can keep it in my glasshouse  (bright light, for my latitude and relatively cool) or inside in a south window, bright but warmer.
