So, I'm wondering who (if anyone) has been growing Neps outdoors during the warm season. Specifically, I'm hoping to find some folks that are working within USDA zone 7/8 in coastal/latoral climates. I've had my largest ten or so Neps growing uncovered for most of the winter and I'm curious to try a few outdoors once it's warm enough. The candidates are all highlanders, so I'm pretty sure they'll work if anything will.
Anyways, who's got experience with this stuff? Any tips? I think I'm going to just use some cheesecloth or semi-translucent plastic for shade, and eventually move them into full sun during the early part of the day. Failing that, the other side of my yard gets a few hours of noonday sun in spots and tree-filtered PM light.
