Moving on out

rennflApril 13, 2013

Finally, I think the weather is warm enough to get the warm growers completely outside this weekend! We had a warmer than usual winter, I don't think my backyard ever frosted this year, but a pretty cool spring, so this move has been delayed.

So I'll be spending most of today arranging them outside according to watering and sunlight tolerances.

So plants that I left outside this past winter for the first time.

crassicaulis
cumingiana
meliflua
lacunosa (yeah it didn't do well oops)
cembra
paziae (Iris Marie?)
tannaensis

And then the ones that I have done before

polyneura
serpens
bella
publicalyx
obovata
australis
dasyantha
carnosa
fungii

With the exception of the lacunosa, the ones that are left outside, still did well. And these ones, although their growth does slow, they perform better than the ones brought inside. I'm guessing the fresh air and direct sunlight overrides the cooler weather.

Anyone else getting ready to move them out?

Too cold still in PA. I usually have to wait until the end of April for the last frost to pass.

No hoyas will be moved outside until early June. We got about 10 cm. of snow on saturday, and there will be frosty nights still. :(

Ouch. We're just rainy and cold, with a dusting due tomorrow=/
Mine are fine indoors; one is dormant, one putting out new growth. No moving outdoors for me either, unfortunately...
