Re: My Intro

Not Sue, but have you tried transitioning them to the outside? Even full sun perennials can't take going from inside to outside immediately. Start them in part shade, and gradually increase the full sun exposure. I have even sunburned cacti by putting them out in direct sun without transition. A row cover will help the transition too.

Welcome Sue! Thank goodness...a dedicated houseplant person to ask my
questions of! I do great with my houseplants all winter long but then
the poor things suffer great neglect when springtime comes and I get
busy with the outdoor gardens...and if I try to move them outdoors they
get horribly burned up in the sun. Is there someway I can make this
transition easier on them? By the way, what does your indoor garden of
30 or so houseplants consist of? Do you specialize with anything or just
have a variety of stuff?

Subject: [CHAT] My Intro

Hi everyone!<br> Thanks for the warm welcome. I am Sue from NY. I am an
avid indoor gardener.<br>I live in an apartment in New York City (Staten
Island to be exact) and don't<br>have any space outside to garden. :-(
I'm 34 and live with my boyfriend and<br>our cat, Minky. Right now I've
got about 30 different houseplants growing,<br>plus some seeds I'm
hoping will germinate. I've always loved gardening. I grew<br>up in
Massachusetts and used to grow vegetables and flowers in my
parent's<br>backyard. Neither of them have much interest in growing
things...I think I got<br>the bug from my grandmother, who used to grow
the best veggies, roses, lilacs<br>and geraniums ever! :-) I am glad to
here!<br><br>SueNY<br><br>--------------------------------------------- ------------------------<br>Support
