There are a lot of people around that tree!

I don't really have the space to be honest, I have access to use a large south facing garden, but it's just access as it's not mine. Unless I make a greenhouse version of a trojan horse I think I'm stuck with using lights and windowsills. The outside space I could use is pretty overshadowed by big trees or walls.

Was it the last talk, Woody mentioned bribing people with margaritas? I could try that approach I suppose.

Eanadena on Reddit/Lisa on here has them in a garage and they look amazing so the problem could just be me haha

I don't think you're doing too bad with them. I've had issues this year with some of mine as I find out what they exactly want in my growing conditions so you're not alone with that!

New growth on the Dioscorea, I gave it a drop of water between the last post and now and have just noticed a new shoot. I’ve moved it back to the windowsill as it looks a bit brown. Does anyone know when is a good time to repot dioscoreas? I want to change it to a more mineral mix.

Also started adjusting the pH of the tap water with white vinegar and using less fertiliser.

The rebutias were treated with a 3% hydrogen peroxide bath as I think they have mites, you can see a bit of greener new growth. Anyone know hydrogen peroxide works or how often to repeat treatments?
