Hot climates

botanical_billJanuary 26, 2007

I live in florida and I found out that the top of my soil drys out realy fast. Because of this, I get no surface roots. What I did is put a small handfull of vermeculite on top of the soil. Now the soil says uniformily moist. Just passing this on in case someone is having this problem.
