My bog garden went through some hard times in the beginning of this summer. Temperatures went from the 60s-70s to the high 80s in just one day. Long story short I only have 3 sarrs left. Any tips for dealing with sudden heat spikes.

Im not exactly sure what went wrong. I originally thought it was the sudden increase in temperature. For context this happened in late April or early May, night time temps were still going into the high 40s. The surface of the media dried out sometimes, but just below the surface would always be moist. I just find it odd that most of the plants were drastically effected (drooping/wilting), but a few were not effected at all.

That weather report is very cool because of the tropical systems in play. July is high 90's and it when my sarr's start to really color up.
