Greetings, I didn't seem to give my location because I did not give my location ;-) My apologies. I live in Berkeley. The Welwitschia lived in San Francisco (so never a frost but as low as 35 degree cold and lightly watered all winter). I moved to Berkeley last year and am still getting used to the *frequent* frosts in my backyard (a trap for cold air it seems). -|<ipp > Date: Wed, 7 Dec 2011 23:15:15 +0000 > From: firstname.lastname@example.org > To: email@example.com > Subject: Re: [pbs] Welwitschia, a source for > > You don't seem to give your location -What is your minimum winter > temperature Kipp?
