I'm trying some Blechnum minus from Tasmania, but they're only very small yet (about 8 months old from spores) in a pot indoors. Anyone else tried this?

It's a thermometer . . . but why it needs to be calibrated down to -50°C in a garden with bananas . . . well, let's hope it never gets tested to its limits! :ahhh!:
