Haha thanks Stan! And at least mandevillas are hardy by you. They won't make it through even a relatively mild winter here. We usually manage to dip into at least the upper 20s, on average we bottom out at around 22-24 degrees every winter and the upper teens every 10 years or so!
I hope no one takes my orchids haha. In the warmer parts of Florida, people have insurance on their staghorn ferns! People like to hang them from their trees in huge baskets and a 20 year old fern can go for thousands of dollars. I thought that was really interesting!
I think we have really similar taste in plants!
And I will take your advice about cycads. I never had much luck with them as potted plants in NY. I am really liking the Zamia and if I can find another cool species I'll try to make some space. Good luck with your cardboard palm and other plants!
