I am sorry to hear of your hot temps. How are your streps getting along? Did you have to take all their blooms off like last year when it got to hot?

Hope you are staying cool! :cloud_9:

Yea Carlynn, I do it regulary every day. Its a bit heartbreaking when you take the time and effort to get them to flower only to lop them off.
I know the world is getting hotter but we all tend to think it will get better. Since i wrote last our temps have been all around 100F every day with more to come. It was our hottest December on record and January is shaping up the same. February is our hottest month (statisically) so who knows whats in store.
I have 2 water coolers on my Streps all day and a fan at night. It does help but it takes a lot of work.
Our major show is in april but I doubt I will have anything to show unless I start bringing them inside. We'll see what happens.
I guess you guys are maybe in for it next summer, hope not.
