Not all my plants want to stay inside in the heat. Once my lettuces came up, they moved out onto Ike's little porch in the sunshine. If the weather gets really warm they may have to move around in a bit of afternoon shade on the north side. If we get an overnight freeze, I'll move them back inside. Lettuce can stand a short freeze but no need to set it back.
Lettuce seedlings, red Cimarron and green leafed Noga varieties from Renee's Seeds.
I'll pick baby leaves for salad until they're thinned, then let them grow into dense heads.
Gerberas like a cool greenhouse. Unless there
is a freeze, these remain outside looking in.
Pink species type Gerbera Daisy.
White muscari. I tucked a few bulbs in with violas back in December.
A second bud is just visible at bottom along with some viola seedlings from seed pods.
Violas and muscari prefer cooler temps outside to being in the hothouse.
Experimentation shows where plants are happiest. I don't put tenderest tropicals in the greenhouse. A Pothos inside my house is big-leaved and happy. A smaller rooted Pothos cutting has not thrived since it moved to the greenhouse where temps sometimes hover around 40F.
I have so many things I want to show you.
The cuttings I potted up yesterday in the greenhouse are Here. Some Like it Hothouse.
