    Fyre:

    Rochester? Kewl! Go Bills! I've had to do many things to get temperates through the winter. When I was living in a place that had an attic, they all went there, by a window, for a good 4 months. Last year I gave them to a co-worker, who has a garage with windows. I still have to deal with winter and may have to go back to the same co-worker.

    Kath:

    I know that none of these plants have identical growing conditions but they seem to have similar enough to be put together. That particular cobra lily has been the best specimen I have ever had. It also came from a hobbyist, as opposed to a "Lowes Cube Of Death". That may be coincidence and it may not. All I know is that it is doing well enough right where it is, even surviving a few days in the 90's, without showing signs of distress. Cool roots? Ice cubes? Flowing water? This does fine as is. Probably a healthy plant to begin with.

    Thanks for sharing your photo's. Do the taller plants ever get any wind damage? It looks like they are pretty high up on your balcony.

    They could but haven't so far. I can buy or make small trellises.
