Guillermo Angulo's Victoria 'Longwood
Hybrid', which spent most of its first year in a bathtub, has
a second life in a pond at "Tegualda". To keep it warm
on cool Colombian nights, a cover was constructed from branches,
wire and bubble plastic, fondly called the "kite".
The kite increases the water temperature from 6-8C above ambient
air temperature. Within a month after the transplant in February
2002, the plant was in bud and in two months was thriving.
