Last year I learned that the leaves are highly susceptible to scorching during hot weather so this year I will take pre-emptive action on what's forecast to be the hottest day of the year so far by watering around the younger leaves before covering them with with a lightweight fleece. Hopefully this will provide a shield from the sun and make for a cooler microclimate underneath. The doors and side blinds are fully open, there's a fan on the tip of the main vine and on the stump. I can't really do much else.
