    Nice plants!! I see that you keep your plants outside, and that you are in Texas. I would think that it would get too hot there during the summer, or not enough humidity...what are your conditions like where you keep all your plants? I'm in SoCal and get extremely hot summers, but if you can pull it off, I would think that I could too!!

    here is where i hang them. they never get any direct sunlight. we are hitting 95f(in the shade) during the day and recently its been about ~80f nights and about 30% humidity, which is really low for houston.

    as is expected with the houston weather, today is 83% humidity, i was rather surprised to see it at 28% yesterday(maybe glitch in weather system) when it sure as hell didnt feel like it. feeling sticky and sweating in the shade is a good indicator here.

    What's humidity usually like in FW? I was hoping on being able to grow some stuff on my balcony, at least for a couple months...
