Before I began reading in the forums here at DavesGarden.com, and the notes people have posted in the Plant Files to particular varieties of fuchsias, I would have said that growing fuchsias indoors was not possible!
But now I am going to try it myself and I hope those of you who are doing so also, or have done so in the past, will join us here in discussing the how to's, the successes, and the difficulties of it.
To start off with, here as F. magellanica sent to me two weeks ago by Willowwind2. As you can see, it has already put out new growth!
These are in a sunny, southern facing window. Next to a window that gets afternoon and setting sun. It is the brightest spot on the house. It is joined by a Crown of Thorns and a hoya. As well as a selected variety of fuchsia starts, to see how they do.
I have gas heat, with no circulation system. So the heat just rises from the one heater. I keep it about 70 inside during the day and lower it to 60 at night.
There are a fair number of plants in other areas of the house, including orchids. Which contributes to the humidity in the house.
