We're having some of the greatest weather-still. We've had one very light patchy frost,some time back. but lately we're experiencing daytime temperatures of high sixties,low seventies Fah. My hippeastrum are growing better than they ever have before,especially Papilio. The forecast is more of the same for the next ten days. We are also getting a lot of light, slow rain,which is soaking in. Rain is ordinarily scarce in the winter time, in Florida.
This past summer, the sunlight was so intense, that it burned the leaves of all hippeastrum, not in the shade. This weather is more than making up for that resulting lack of growth.
