    What a coincidence!
    Now I got a damage from squrriels, then hailstorm! Worst of all, the hailstorm came right after it rained for a while. All I can hope is that they recover, since I grow all my CP outside- exposed- include tropical CPs. Did anyone's CP got damaged from hailstorm before? I just want to know what to do for them, especially pings and droseras...
    Boo!

    'round here we call that sleet. Hail is when it's at least the size of peas, LOL....Though a bad hail it can be like grapes (not common).

    grape sized? the fun stuff is golfball size, generally get one or three storms a year in the area with that. its not a hailstorm until its busting out windows anything less is just an annoyance
