> Hymenocallis x 'Festalis' also seems quite happy in the orchid pot with leca

> I included some photos where you can see the roots.  I keep them all well
> watered, and add fertilizer to the water at least once a week.
> The rain lilies are in regular potting mix, but they love being in the
> orchid pot with the little reservoir of water at the bottom.
> Polianthes geminiflora is a little perplexing to me.  I thought I would
> struggle to keep it happy through the winter, indoors under lights, but in
> actuality keeping it happy outside has been far more difficult.  Most of
> them died back, and are just now resprouting.  I don't know what they
> want... maybe more water, more shade, or less heat?
