Beautiful day here, perfect fall day, wonderful for washing and bleaching all the small pots in readiness for new seeds in the next few months!
I have about 4 - 5 small Dieramas ( or is that just Dierama? ) that I grew from seed this year,they are in quite small pots, and I see that I most likely should have potted them up in a something larger in about July, however, that "somehow" didn't get done..... anyway, they are looking quite well, but I know I have to have them indoors to overwinter here, and since they are still babies, I've heard that for the first year they should be kept green and growing somewhat over the winter. Here's the thing - should I keep them in the small pots now that it's so late in the year? Also, I plan on bringing them into the house and having a special small set up of grow lights for them. Would this be the best way to do it? Or, should they be in a cooler situation? As an alternative, I could keep them in the pumphouse under lights, but we only keep it about 8 deg. C in there. Any thoughts on this? I would really like to bring these plants through the winter, or at least give it a good try!
