No problem. They get a good 7-8 hours of direct Sun a day and rainwater is used on them. They get 3 months of winter dormancy in a refrigerator.

This year I experimented using Scott's Disease EX fungicide on 4 plants. It was supposed to act like steroids and increase growth, sturdy-ness and color according to some people but after 4 months I've seen NO difference in their growth what so ever.

I heard something like that on YouTube about the steroid effect on plants. I thought if it were true all large grower/retailers would do it. I bet you had no diseases though lol.

LOL, no diseases. Then again I only have a tiny bit of fungus when taking them out of the fridge in the beginning of February. So the Scott's won't go to waste, at least I have a lifetime supply of it now.
