Hi, Ellen,Latest on Cyp seedlings: They've all died down for the winter, so the pots look empty. Ron, can I leave them outside all winter? Our winter temperatures seldom go below freezing, but do occasionally get down to the 20's in December/January. Last winter we even had a couple of nights when temps were down in the teens. Can the babies take these cold temperatures, or should I bring them inside?
Congratulations! The second year is a breeze. They will have a nice root system and be much more robust than in their first year. Still keep them from drying out as they are still fairly small but you should see a nice difference in size.GOOD NEWS! The first Cyp sighting was today. Looks like most of the favillianum have made it through their first winter just sitting outside under a pile of leaves, and are sprouting again this year. I imagine the reginae can't be far behind. Ron, any tips for caring for them their second year?
