Hi, Temperatures have warmed up a bit, days 70-75 F (22.5 C), and nights around 50-62 F (ca. 15 C). My South African winter-type bulbs are happy, and the same for winter-type germinating seeds. I hope the seedlings will grow well and gain mass, so that when I put them away for a few summer months they will have enough reserves. I do have some 6-10 month-old seedlings of summer growers (South African), and (I've been letting them grow this winter by giving 15-hour days inside under lights. They don't know it is winter. However, they enjoy the warm days and, as seedlings, don't seem to worry about the day length. I'm wondering if winter-growing plants from don't prefer Spring and Fall here, as do some summer growers from high altitudes. Perhaps they don't care about day length so much as temperature, humidity, and soil wetness. Time will tell; I need to grow more and experiment more. Cordially, Conroe Joe Forecast is for 61 F tonight and 76 F tomorrow. Rain is possible and humidity is high.
