Like "Potted plants can be more difficult to grow. They dry out faster or else can have too much moisturer, the soil temperature can get to hot and then get to cold much faster. My green thumbs (from my mom's grandmother and my dad's Aunt) work wonderful for in the ground plants, but seem not so good for pot plants(at least my year 1 test was not to good.) Will see how my victims, er I mean violas do that I just got today."
