, I keep my plants outside all year, I made a special table for them where I can give them shade cloth in the heat of summer and plastic to shelter them from the rains.
They get full sun most of the day. this is last year, I made a few modifications since then....
These ants are super small. I have a lot of Capes on the way, still small plants at the moment but I just planted a hell lot of more seed as I've found them to be just awesome companion plants for everything just as a fungus nat / white fly killer. I put a few under my grow lights as soon as I saw some fungus nats.... and nats are gone...lol
