Re: Houston, we have a flower!

If there is water in the ground, the leaves shouldn't droop until the temps are about or over 100° . Misting upper plant will help cool the leaves in the bright sun.

Re: Houston, we have a flower!

From the droopy looking leaves, this plant needs some water. Mist the leaves about 3 times a day and water the ground. A grown nana plant will transpire about 1 1/2 gal of water per day. ...

Re: Houston, we have a flower!

If the fingers are developed well enough before the cold sets in, they should be able to handle light frost, especially dwarf orinoco. With certainty, they won't finish until next year.
