Thought i would do an update. My elm is doing much better now with the CFL. The older darker green leaves have turned yellow and died, but the new leaves are doing fine. It's amazing how different in color and texture then new leaves are compared to the old leaves that received sunlight. My guess is, it's normal for the old leaves to die off?
It was like christmas in my house yesterday, my soil from Northstar came. Excellent quality, definitely the best option if you don't have too many plants. Also got my soil screens! AND! my seeds for redwood and boxwoods came. It was a very exciting day. Can't wait to start germinating the seeds and get that going while I wait a bit more to repot.
Can't wait till SPRING!!!
