How does your speciosum grow in San Antonio? Does do well in the heat?

I hate to be a "wet blanket" here, but listing what plants you grow in semi-hydroponics is of NO VALUE to others unless you include details of your growing conditions, indicating both day/night, and seasonal variations.

ANY plant CAN be grown that way, but that does not mean that any one individual can grow every plant that way.

For example, I have a nearby customer who wins awards for her succulents and cacti grown in S/H culture. Could I do that? Probably not.

Hi Steve! My speciousum is growing really, really well, mind you i only bought it maybeeee.... three or four months ago? It's a pendunculatum variety, which i read on The Rock Lily Man is a more heat tolerant speciosum found in more nothern, warm areas of Australia.
I have it in a ten galon aquarium in semi hydroponics under two flouresent shop lights @ 4500 kelvins each, it's put out two new pbulbs bigger than the ones it came with, growing roots like CRAZY!! The lights keep the tank warm all day long, i have them on from 630 am to 830 pm on an automatic timer. I wish i could tell you the exact temp it reaches but santa did not remember to bring me a thermometer this year > but as soon as i get one, i can let you know what temperature is in the tank. Another thing i like about this pendunculatum is that they are said to be compact be comparison to other speciosum.... tbh it seems like a Labrador retriever could be said to be more compact than a species speciosum too, though.
I plan on shoving the tank out onto the balcony (north east) in one of those pop up green houses from L***s come spring, but i dont think i would leave it out in south Texas summer. Right now its inside under the lights as our balcony is too dark for anything in the winter. Sorry for the long winded reply, im sure im skipping over a bunch of stuff but i hope this reply isnt too, too daunting. lmk if u have any questions, i think i have a pic of it on my profile somewhere, but i can load another one if you'd like. I'll try to add the current temps its growing in asap too. Hope this is useful

Definitely helpful! This summer I bought two kingianums and they grew just fine in the Texas heat, so I'm looking to other Aussie Dends that might do well here even though they're not supposed to tolerate the heat. The great thing about the kingianums is that I still haven't brought them inside for the winter, they've been cranking out new growths, and I think I see flower buds swelling on the newer bulbs. Peter Lin (in California) also posted some pics of an Aussie Dend cross that he thinks would do just fine here in Central Texas, which is more inspiration to try this group out here in Austin.

Where did you get the speciosums? Sorry to hijack this thread.
