Never make any winter protection which has zero ventilation. I fried & killed my first palm because of that. I thought that high temperature inside will be enough to make it through Winter :(

Im planning on checking its pH cause I've lost few yuccas, plus typical desert species like harrimaniae, baccata, rostrata etc. grow so slowly and die in the end. Im wondering is it my soi...
