    Hey Joe, but probably wouldn't do too well in Central Texas? I would be growing it outdoors and temperatures easily get above 100. But they are beautiful plants.

    @Baylorguy:
    In Southern Oregon during the summer, it isn't uncommon to have lots of 100 degree temps. If anything, Texas humidity might be an issue, but I wouldn't know for sure.

    For $7+shipping it might be worth a shot. I've seen my seed-grown plants endure some amazing heat, and the days are longer up here in the north. Some people build little shelters to keep their pots from warming up in the sun; cobras are mostly just sensitive at the roots. Protect the roots from extreme heat and the rest of the plant is pretty tough. My own strategy is to use oversized planters with really chunky media, with ample portions of live Sphagnum in the top layer.
    Bottom line - unless you have heat waves where the nights don't cool down for many weeks at a time, you can probably do it. You might end up taking it inside and growing it by the A/C, or you might have to build a recirculating bog to keep the roots cool, but I don't see any reason to think you're doomed to failure.
