African violets outdoors?
Hi, I was just wondering if I put my African violet outside during the summer. I was thinking of putting it in my back porch which, though on the south side, is shaded by various trees and covered by a roof, but I'm wondering if it'll be too hot for it. In Oklahoma temperatures are normally in the 90's during the summer with heat indeces normally in the upper 90's and 100's. And 100 plus degrees are common during July and August.
Would the violet just fry in the heat, or will the shady conditions be enough to keep it cool while providing enough diffused light to keep it happy and blooming?
