Citrina doing better inside

karyn1(7a)August 20, 2007

Well my citrinas have been inside for a couple weeks and seem much happier. No more yellow foliage. I guess they just can't stand the high heat. It does well in dappled shade until mid July, then the foliage starts to yellow and drop, even when I move them to full shade. I guess these will need to remain inside for most of the year. To bad because I hate having plants in the house.

I don't like having plants in the house either - I think p. citrina is one I won't order.

Mine died out side too it was just to hot even in the shade here was sad to lose it so fast we also have had a ton of rain that didnt help matters .I have lost about 3 do to the heat and rain but up and coming my favorite is this guy you cant kill it its a tuff plant and my GF butterflys love it.

Didnt care for these at first but wow they bloom everyday and grow fast can bloom from seed in a few months and great for caterpillars .I like the pink better than the purple but both are a must for hot zones that would kill most plants.
