    They look like white birds in flight
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Hence the name "Egret flower"
    What do you do when you see an endangered animal that eats only endangered plants?

    Thanks! My temperatures are similar but I am guessing that you do have decent night temperature drops. My plants are looking like highland Neps having heat stress...stunted and succulent-like growth.

    I'm growing in a 50/50 mix of peat and sand, but next year I'll try perlite since I lost 2 others to rot. I guess we get about a 15-20 degree drop at night on average.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Bring the plants in at night. I do the in and out shuffle early and late in the season to avoid excessive cold on some plants, it would work to help them avoid excessive heat as well.
