They look very nice. Are they under artificial lights? What are the names of your varieties?

The third one looks at lot like Florida Sun Rose, and the fourth looks a lot like Electric Lime. Over-wintered plants are sometimes difficult to ID. They may get a sufficient amount of light, but there is nothing like sunlight: the color arrays of the spectrum are not easy to duplicate. Margins on over-wintered plants are often much narrower or wider or a different color. The Twist and Twirls do better for me indoors than outdoors for reasons unknown.

Without a doubt, they are all looking forward to going outdoors, and we are looking forward to it also.
