Ken,
The majority of these will be given away once I decide which few of each I want to keep. Getting rid of them is not easy here. This is why I wish it was easier to send plants across into the U.S., as most people (like your self and everyone here) are in the U.S. or other.

Tarev,
Right now the temperatures range from daytime 70-90 F and evening min. 60F. I keep the evening temperatures to minimum by using my black water filled bottles in house which gain heat and keep temps up at night. We usually have evenings in June of 70-80F, just bouncing around right now.
I like them under cover (seedlings & juveniles) so that I can manage any and all water they get.

Maybe a control freak?

Some how I believe you are correct, Kadie. Thumbs up
Sometimes I just shake my head and ask myself why, why!!!!!!! and I always get the same response. So we go on.

Would it not be great if we could swap plants amongst us. It would be such a pleasure to do that.

Thanks for the tour.
Considering how close you are to our border you would think it would not be that hard to trade plants. What I read that it's easier to drive them through customs then it is to ship them.
But I get frustrated that the world has EBay and Amazon but still can't get certain items equally in developed areas
What are your day time highs if you June nights get that high? We only ever get nights at around 73 when our day tempts are a 100. That is usually for about a week.
