    Why is it that plants outside seem to tolerate the heat and indoors ones don't? Something in the natural sunlight? UVB? Fresh air? Where's that new member that's a horticulture student?

    Temp of the root zone Jr. Outdoor plants in the ground in high heat have a lower temp in the root zone due to the large soil mass. Indoor plants in pots or outdoor in pots both have a difficult time with long periods of high heat do to smaller soil mass heating up.

    That makes sense. Can't wait for cooler weather.

    soil temp

    Stability in the soil temp is also part of several factors. My light meter said 10,988. Lumins on an overcast day the same as a new hps 3ft from the reflector and it said that everywhere not just at the canopies but the ground twenty ft high six ft everywhere and on a clear day it pegged the meter. Unrestricted roots and constant air exchange. There are more reasons but that list is longer than a horse cock
