comment grow room temperature control
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about designing or building a heating and cooling system; albeit its final use may be for growing plants, it's not about the growing of those plants.

comment What is this white grub I found in my soil in southern England?
I added a link to the Wikipedia page for this species, but it does not describe the pupae. Please add some information on how you identified it, preferably with references. Also, please try to find the law that you mentioned. Thanks!

comment Will tulips survive a winter in USDA zone 5 when planted in a boat?
How big is this boat (as compared to the frost line in your area)? How is it mounted (in the air, resting on the ground, etc.)? Does it have good drainage (tulips don't like it wet)?

comment What is this flower that smells like a skunk?
Could it be an offspring from a plant that seeded earlier this year? That might explain why it's only been flowering for two weeks if it's just now reached maturity.

@J.Musser If you zoom in, you can see where some flowers have lost their petals further down on the head.

comment Can I dig up a wilting Begonia in the garden and turn it into a houseplant?
Hi and welcome to the site! I edited out the parts about being new and searching for duplicates since they don't add useful information to the main question about your begonias; we prefer posts to be to the point on these sites. Again, welcome!
