Hi Jose , yes I believe both our islands are sitting in the same water . Thanks for responding , and yes I do have a bit of a problem right now with the plants falling over . It's kinda gusty a lot here right now and the wind just knocks them right over . While I appreciate the lattice suggestion , I have my plants on the inside since I'm in an apt and not my own house space is a bit limited but I will pass your idea on to my friend who has hers outside her house , thanks . Before I go though do you have any pearls of wisdom on how to keep my plants happy in our climate ?
