Citrina doing better inside

Posted by karyn1 MD 7 ( on

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.

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.
