Hi Jim: 
          For all these plants. heat. You can see them in subtropical places growing like weeds under complete neglect, flowering and setting abundant seed. Their foliage is perennial and in Europe Neomarica northiana/candida is grown as an indoor plant. Most grow well in heavy shade in the wild. Some crops common in those regions: tea, sugarcane, mango, papaya, banana, to give an idea
