Growing garlic in tropical monsoon area

From what I've read in other messages in this forum, it seems that garlic needs cold weather in order to grow or divide. What will happen to any garlic that I try to grow where I am? (Sri Lanka, temperatures between 27-35 Celsius year round.)

evidently, it can be grown, I'd suggest contacting a university or a local farmer there. Possibly there is avariety that is adapted to the climate and day length, which might be significant.

There is warm weather gralic already adapted to the culture. I am growing a phillippine garlic named Palawa that is performing well for me. If I remember from when I lived there, they had several varieties and I think one was a hardneck.
