Well done John. ;D Anthony your main disadvantage with arils may be the high humidity and summer rain in Auckland, you'd need some kind of a dry glasshouse for them,

The house roof next to the west facing patio has a large overhang. The pots here have to be watered regularly as they rarely get rained on. Humidity would be a factor both inside and outside a glasshouse here. I can grow Spanish moss, so it must be quite damp?
