    actually, I think it will be fine as is as long as I don't put it in the bed of my pick up truck lol

    I don't know what to expect to be honest, but I do know that my prior attempts at cobras have resulted in slow declines.
    They just don't seem to be able to deal with the occasional +100f August heat.

    I'm hopeful this will be enough, we will see :-)

    Some friends in Texas have had successes with the plants, by refrigerating the RO water and occasionally applying ice cubes to the compost during the hottest times . . .

    Ephipany, huh? Doesn't that eventually require a truss?
