monstera delicious in zone 9?

I have monstera delicious in a pot and I'm thinking about trying it outdoors next year here in zone 9a. I have two spots protected by my house, carport and some live oaks. One spot is protected from the north and east. The other spot is protected from the north and west. Each have about 3 or 4 hours of direct sunlight and somewhat bright shade the rest of the day. Does this have a chance of working? I'm in hot and humid south Louisiana.

They are very sensitive to frost. Sometimes in a protected are under a tree that does not get frost it will do OK in 9b, but I'm not so sure about 9a.
