Moonflowers open during Daytime??
I have some moonflower vines growing in a semi large container indoors (sunny southern window! ) and it has just begun to flower, on Earth Day , as a matter of fact (which I thought was auspicious :) Well today I noted two more flowers that were going to open - and just looked at them (4:45 pm, and it's still very light here until 8 : 30 pm!) and they are both opened / opening already! What gives? Does this happen with this flower frequently? I have only grown them outdoors for two years now so I don't have a ton of experience with this plant but I do know none of those opened before dark..WELL into the dark in fact, like 10 or even 11 pm here . Anyone have daytime openings like this?? Maybe growing them indoors confuses things (?) ....I do know that I am in heaven to be able to smell their exquisite scent in April :) (planted the seeds on February 8th) .....I feel lucky...and also, they are FULL sized flowers, fully 6 inches across with that gorgeous long tubular beginning.
thanks in advance,
