Cultural Code: HP CGH what's this?

"Firecracker Vine" Pubescent climber with tubular "Candy Corn" flowers red with yellow tips; must have reliable levels of humidity and very bright light to set flower buds. We were first given a cutting of this old favorite by Mr. Easterbrook over thirty some years ago and it remains as popular now as it was then--And it had not even been discovered by the topiary croud at that point.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
