Hortulanus Posted December 17, 2022 Report Share Posted December 17, 2022 Since we are having cold spells all around the world lately (Australia, West + East Coast of Northern America, Werstern Europe etc...), I'm thinking a lot about a subject that from my perception is not so often discussed around palmnuts and exotic growers and I catch myself every now an then not taking it into consideration: The difference between the measured temperature at 2m above the ground and the temperature next to the soil. Especially in the winter this can mean dead or alive for some smaller plants like overhead protection or exposure can. I think it is an interesting topic because like all of the other climate parameters it's not universal and it can differ a lot depending on the weather conditions. But a measured temperature of just above freezing can already mean a few degrees below freezing next to the ground. I'm pretty sure many here have their opinion on this and probably think about this, but how many of you actually do? Is anyone monitoring ground temperatures? Are you thinking about this whenever you plant something small? Do you think it makes a huge difference? I hope somebody is as interested as I am in this. 2 2023 High 27.3°C Low -3.9°C Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
