Which plant ok the coolest?

Post  edfhinton on 4/23/2013, 8:44 pm

I have a bit of a poblem. Even after planting out hundreds of plants, I have now run out of room under the grow lights now that just about everything else planted so far has been up-potted to 4" pots. And I will have more to put under the lights any day now. I have a sunroom, but it is unheated. So while I could move anything indoors at night, I either need to settle for a south facing window that only gets morning sun or the unheated sunroom during the day for either my 3" to 4" tall celery seedlings or my 1" tall basil. Daytime temps are ranging from the upper 40s to the 60s outside, so the sunroom gets nice and warm on sunny days (70s), but probably not much past 50 on rainy days currenty.

My question is, which is more likely to be ok in he sunroom in the uppers 40s and low 50s on rainy days - the celery or the basil? I also have tomatoes and peppers and I do not want to risk those at all, so those have dibs to stay under the lights.

Any suggstions?

Celery is supposedly a cool weather plant. You might try to make a tent of sorts to cover the plants and hold in some heat- popsicle sticks and plastic wrap?

Thanks! I will give that a shot. The celery is also the plant I would be the least disappointed if I lose some, so that being the better choice over te basil doesn't worry me quite as much (except tha my pride doesn't want to lose anything. It is bad enough snipping tomato seedlings to keep the strongest when up-potting.)

Move the celery to the sunroom. I think basil likes to be warm.
