dear bob, i dont grow darlings but from my extensive field experience i know
they need cool to cold water around their roots like their pot should be
sitting in a container with fresh water and maybe the ice cubes like you're
doing. They don't need to be quite so hot-their summer temps in nature range
quite a bit-usually 70-80, sometimes 100 F, but nights and winter temps are
colder and in winter they are usually covered with up to several feet of snow
so they do require winter dormancy. good luck, christine
