however, i did have multiple times where i was trying to harden it (ie: reduce humidity) and it definitely didnt like that---because of the slope it was hard getting even growth since the higher areas were less humid than the lower areas, or the fact that it tried to insist on growing horizontally instead of vertically, so i had periods of massive die offs.
Thanks for the input. I'm glad you had such success with the UG
