The Q&A Archives: flowering plants

Question: I am having a problem with keeping my plants alive on my screened in back porch. I have these same plants on the outside and they are doing well.Do you have any idea what could be wrong? I feel certain that there is suffient sunlight.

Answer: About the only difference between your screened porch and the great outdoors are the intensity of sunlight and the possibility that the air gets hot and stagnant in the screened area. You might try growing plants that require partly shady conditions rather than those that require full sun, and you might try turning on a fan in the screened porch to stir the air a bit.

Hope this helps!
