    Where do you live? Can a raff and a purp live in the same area?

    The purp will need a dormancy period or it will die, and the raff will die if it gets cold temperatures like the purp needs. They won't survive together for long.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I understand but I live in USDA zone 10. What I'm counting on is N. rafflesiana and my other lowland neps likes Zone 11 and S. purpurea likes Zones 3-9. I just have to take out the heater when it gets to cold for the N. rafflesiana and other lowland neps. All plants are growing in partial sun I will keep everyone posted...
