    leaves start turning black at the tips. they don't do well in full sun here at my place. finding that it appears to be related to UV light. At 3500 feet here in Hawaii lots of UV. Will probably be different in San Diego from what i remember of my visit there......

    That is quite a nice plant.

    @SCDPs, I've tried them both in LFS/ cypress mulch and peat:sand and they seem to be comparable to each other. I also always use the tray method, since I'm not at my house 90% of the year and they do fine as well. So mainly it's the temperature that's the main issue (or UV intensity, which I personally haven't had an issue with).

    @Kulamauiman, what are your average day/night temps where your Regia was growing?

    Interesting...Mach, when you brought your plant outside, was it mostly green? One experiment could be to try growing it indoors under intense lighting beforehand, so you can get some red coloration going first (like in my sig pic) and then bring it outdoors to see how it fares. Unless your plant already had coloration going when you brought it out the first time, lol.

    I think you may be onto something with light intensity though. It's possible that higher light intensity may effectively lower the maximal temperature range....but who knows
