Unfortunately, I certainly can't help you since I am a strictly windowsill grower myself. But I didn't want to go on uncommented.
Just as a side note, that is an awful lot of information in there bundled very tightly. It might help some of the other members give you advice if you try and pose the question a little more clearly....I'm just having trouble identifying the troubling issue from all of the background information. But maybe that's just me.
Sorry I can't help more!
