    5417.--Gesnerads in greenhouses.--Can any of your readers inform me if any of the Gesneraceæ can be grown in a greenhouse kept up to a temperature of 45 or 50 at night? In Roozen's catalogue I find species of Biglandularia, Centrosolenia, Kohleria, Mandirola, and Stenogastra marked d, meaning to be planted in spring. Would these, or any of the summer-flowering Tydæas do without stove heat? --A. R. W., Godalming.
