Hello here’s some little upgrades to my outdoor setup.

Got the pot sitting in a plastic tub with rocks and water for extra humidity. (The pot isn’t sitting in water don’t scream at me)

I have also moved locations under this tree. Gets direct morning sun until around 9-10 then it gets dappled sunlight for the rest of the day

Hope to fill this tub up! Got maxima wavy on the way right now.

Enjoy your day everyone!

Does that pot have something that keeps the water in it? If so, you might want to pull the bottom off so it drains

Also, if there aren't any drain holes, I'd punch out a few around the max level you want to keep the water to keep the water level from drowning the plant when it rains though I don't know where you're keeping the plant and if it is protected from that.

The pot has holes it drains right out
