I just planted in a 2" starter pot. I put the pot under a dome has shade material shaded but I think now that is a bad idea because it getting too hot inside. I measured to soil temperature at 102. In comparison I have a 30 gallon pot in direct sun and the soil temp is 75. As a reference the air temp is 75 at 2:45PM, the high today was 82.
I’m thinking that small pots are not a good idea for this time of year here in SoCal. Also realized that the small pots should never be place on concrete. That definitely fries them. Anyone here any thoughts.
