Edge,

That's a cool experiment. I'm going to guess that your swords are going to be just fine. Many Echinodorus grow in areas where the mean low temp is below your summer temps up there. I've got some E. kleiner bar in some 10g tanks on my porch and they've survived light frosts and cold overnight temps. Not to mention, Neil Frank has an Echinodorus horemanii in his pond that's about 5 years old and is the Mother of All Huge Swords. I swear it winked at me and kept saying "feed me Seymour!"

Please make sure to keep us updated on your progress.

Best,
Phil

Nah, you're right. The west coast is a lot more moderate than the rest of the country. You just threw me for a loop because where I am is zone 7 and I'm about 1300 miles south of where you are. :)


Best,
Phil
