    In my experience, these details don't matter very much at all, though some growers may disagree. All water I use is at room temp.

    As for time- morning or day wouldn't matter much, and night time would be fine too, but you would have to worry about leaving water on the leaves or in the little spaces of the nodes. If left at night, you could be setting yourself for a fungus outbreak if you have poor air circulation.

    Hope this helps!

    I think they are happy.

    Brian they look quite happy, so glad they are doing well for you!

    It has never made a difference for me watering day or night either. I've done both for extended periods of time due to weird schedules. They don't care, and unlike other plants you won't rot the leaves if water sits on them overnight, so I wouldn't worry about it. I have watered with room temp water or slightly cooler/warmer based on where the water was stored indoors. They aren't too picky.

    Burn starts off as a brown dead spot(s) and then spreads. Looks like a splotch of dead dried brown leaf next to green/red living tissue. You'll know burn if you see it.
