My N. Sanguinea is outside and it was in full sun but we're having this really random and really stupid-horrible MEGA heat wave here in Pennsylvania! My sanguinea's leaves are starting to curl up so I gave it a ton of cool water and put a large box in front of it to shade it from the sun. Will it be okay right there? I'm fully aware that sanguineas can be grown as windowsill plants should the need arise but I'm afraid to take action without asking first. I'm not even sure how long this heat wave is supposed to last! The windowsill it would go on doesn't get as much light as I would like for my nep and moving it from outside to inside is an insanely high humidity and temperature drop! I just need to know what I should do. Will it be alright with that box in front of it or should I go further and bring it inside?? I REALLY do not want it to die!
I also have a question that I was going to post yesterday but never got to it that has NOTHING to do with what I typed above this message but I thought I'd save some room and combine the threads since it's kind of a simple question. The question is: How old does a nep have to be in order for it to flower? And is that the only way to determine a nep's gender, by it's flower? I've always thought that seeing a nep flower was some sort of miracle, I may be wrong and just sheltered. ^_^;
Anyways, please post ASAP, I want to be quick with my actions to lower the damage rate on my nep if it IS being stalked by death itself!
