 I would grow it in the greenhouse. My plants usually flower in Aug-September in comparison to henryi which usually flowers in June. I have summer heat in the 90's (F) with moderately cool nights (down to 55F in a pleasant summer). Rosthornii sets seed and I usually have bulbs for sale, but no one buys them so I now just let the seed fall and germinate..... Germination is immediate and plants mature quickly.

I read that L. rosthornii blooms after L. henryi, which is already quite late.  I would like to collect seed of rosthornii.  Summers here are cool and short.  Should I grow this species in the greenhouse?
