Yep, again, Anne. August is typical for them, but not July. I've already asked DH to bring my C & S in the garage under lights. He has got to get me a greenhouse.
I tried growing my semps and succulents in Al's gritty mix, and they just rotted. I'm still working on a soil combo. DH just bought me a bag of perlite. But I'll have to wait until I'm on my feet again before I can do anything.
