Re: [IGSROBIN] Weather report & zonals

Just a minor point on turning zonals in the sun.  I have found it to be a
generally good idea for maintaining a full plant, and especially at low
light times of year, when a plant may "decide" that it no longer needs a
branch that is not getting enough light.  But the minor point:  when a zonal
is sending up bud stalks, the bud cluster starts out bent over to the side
away from the light -- sort of a crook-neck formation.  As development
progresses, it straightens up, toward the light, and ultimately comes to lie
symmetrically on top about the time the first buds of the umbel open.  If
during this development time the plant is turned, the buds become "confused"
and you can get deformed flower heads.  It's not a serious problem, unless
you happen to be grooming those plants for show and want everything to be as
perfect as it can be.

[...]  What size pot do you keep yours in?  And do you have to keep
turning the pot to get a uniformly full plant?
