Re: [IGSROBIN] Angel question


Treat the angels like you would a regal, but talk to them more.  If you're
going to grow in containers, use 2 parts of a good pre-packaged potting soil
to 1 part of perlite.  Use a balanced liquid fertilizer at 1/4 strength every
time you water.  Don't put them in saucers of water, they hate wet feet.
They'll be happier on the dry side than too wet.  Rotate the pots to keep
plants growing evenly.  They need at least 4-5 hours of sunlight a day to be
happy.  If they get tall and leggy, they need more sun.  They would like the
same temperatures you want in your house -- 65-75 degrees F.  They will take
higher heat, but you have to keep them watered and the pots cool so the roots
don't cook.


PS  That's as brief as I can make it.  Has Andrew been telling you that I
ramble on about the angels?  :-)
