Dear PBSer,
	I was lucky to get a tuber of Alocasia hypnosa (thanks Monica). It is growing well with a 2nd leaf just fully 'out'. I'd appreciate any experience growing this species in a cool climate where it does show full winter dormancy.

	Any experience wintering this in the ground in Zone 5 or 6 w/ mulching or other protection?

	Does it do better sitting in water?   Full sun or some shade?  Any other specifics of soil, ph , mix etc.

	Not much on the web yet about this relatively new species. 

	So far so good. 			Best   Jim W.
