Thanks to Alberta for giving us insights into the growing conditions it
experiences in its natural habitats (perhaps a photograph or two?).

More often than not I have found that plants grown in pots tend to
appreciate slightly shaded conditions rather than full, blazing sunshine
which tends to heat the potting medium up too much resulting in stunted
roots. However, conditions do vary and admittedly my conditions are
probably quite different to those existing in the field.

Good growing
