Houseplant Moving Day

Every summer, I move most of my houseplants outdoors.  Timing is important.  Since many of the plants are quite large, I don’t want to move them back in if there is a cold snap.  I also don’t want to stress them with temperatures that are much lower or higher than what they experience while they are indoors.  The next few days seem ideal — lows should stay above 50°F (10°C) and highs should be below 80°F (27°C).  There also are clouds and showers in the forecast, which will help the plants get accustomed to the higher levels of light outdoors.  Hopefully the weather will live up to the forecast.  I moved the plants to the north side of the garage, so they will have some shade during the day.  I’ll move them again (I don’t want to, but it’s necessary) to the places where they’ll spend the summer after a few days.  The lemon tree, two pineapples, and the Surinam cherry are visible in the photo.
