Yes... :sarcastic_hand:

I think I'd stick them on the other side of that window.

My wife is very tempted to do such a thing.
Its amazing how they grow so quickly (5+mm a day) despite no soil or water.

I think I'm right in saying that in the Aroids all growth is powered by the existing resources in the tuber. The plant then spends the season growing a new tuber for the following year.

Could be interesting to try and pollinate one, I've read that the female flowers are only receptive for a day, or less.

The wife is getting tetchy about these flowing soon. Does anyone know what sort of low temperature they can tolerate? I was thinking of moving them into a cold frame outside- under a lean to.

I take it they have been kept indoors all winter. In which case I would not let them freeze.

I have been growing them for around 5 years in a large pot and have always bought the bulbs indoors after the 1st frost of the winter. They send up the flower shoot like clockwork around New Year. I would be interested to hear from anyone who leave them out in soil (kept on the dry side I guess to avoid rotting).
Would they still flower as normal?

Yes, but rather later in the year. You might remember this topic.
