I recently moved from Houston TX to SLC, UT. In Houston, my VFT's and Sarr's grew like weeds by just being outside year round. It was perfect for them.
Now, however, I live in the foothills at 5200 feet, so the sun is a bit more intense. Also, being on this hillside it's pretty much always windy. Couple that with the constant low humidy, usually 20% or lower, and temps approaching 100F daily, and you have a recipe for unhappy plants, at least in this acclimatisation period.
I've tried to put them in a location where they get several hours of morning and then evening sun, to limit the intense mid day sun. I am having a problem keeping them moist - I'm out of town 4 days a week, and that 1 or 2 incches of water in their tray is long gone by the time I come home - even though the tray is sealed up to the pot to limit evaporation.
I'm also curious if they'll survive long term in such low humidity. I'm also concerned about the root temperatures. So - anyone else grow these plants outside in desert type environs successfully? Or should I just make some space in the indoor terrarium?
