Wintering over my colo/alo - long
Last winter I carried over most of my small collection in 3-5 gal pots in my cool basement under flourescents which I wasn't able to get as close as I would have liked. By March I was waging all out war against spider mite infestations which I 'think' I've won for the time being now that they're outdoors. whatever the plan I'll dose them with a systemic before coming in. I might be able to keep them upstairs in an east bay window where they would be warmer but only with window light...thoughts?
This will be their second winter so would it be OK/better/worse to let them dry out and go dormant?
My 6 new colos are in 2 gal pots in 5-1-1 mix and growing OK but i know they'd never survive letting them go dormant.
Sort of the same question...basement under lights or east window?
