Re: Cold Tolerant Amporhs

Hi Marek,

I have had T. venosum survive here for many years in zone 6a.  Last year we 
were at -22C (-5F) several nights in a row and they all survived with 
virtually no snow cover so I'm not sure why yours do not.

By the way, for those in a reasonable climate I was wondering how large 
tubers of T. venosum  can get.  I pulled a couple out this fall that were 
planted in amongst some other more tropical plants that needed to be dug and 
the tubers were 6" in diameter (15 cm) and the larger one weighed 3 lbs 13 
oz (~1.75 Kg) which is as large as I have ever had.  I'm guessing in zone 8 
or waremr they must get truly massive, but I was just curious as to how 
large they can get?

Got to love those cold-hardy tuberous aroids besides Arisaema :o)

Gibsonia, PA where it is going in to the high 30s (3-4C) the next couple of 
nights....too early for this!
