If you have alkaline soil, you'll have to try pots
with Camelia potting mix, must have acid soil. Other than that, they hate being
moved other than late autumn - early winter. Need a bit of water over summer,
otherwise fairly easy to grow. Mine even outgrow some weeds.
My Australian bred ones seem more robust, esp the
ones from Ivar Schmidt.
Come on, give them a go. Best way to trynis to get
some seeds from Ghio, that way you'll select those that like your conditions and
kill the rest. :-)

I have zero knowledge of PCN's and am not qualified to
comment on your seedlings merits. Others tell me I cannot grow them in my
climate. I like the diversity and intricacies of the blooms I see posted. What
are the currently accepted ideal conditions for growing PCN's? Of which
adverse growing conditions are they least tolerant? Are some varieties more
tolerant of these adverse conditions?
Wonderin' some if "cannot" means
