Had a small one that was growing very nicely until freak, early snow storm (Fri., Oct. 13, 1006) dumped 2+ feet of snow in a couple hours. Power out for 8 days. Greenhouse temps dropped low at night. Only plant to suffer so, of all of them was A. keramanthus. I don't think it dropped below 52 but, apparently enough to do the damage, I believe. Noticed that next day, took it "inside" the house, to keep it warmer ....... Never recovered. Definitely trying another.

Caudiciform plant native to South Africa. Succulent stem to 1' diameter. Red fruits. Rare in cultivation, but available periodically at specialty sales. Probably not cold hardy below 10b, but not known for sure.
