Ugh...Temporarily WAY Overheated

  1. So I put the plants outside because I thought it'd actually be cooler than the garage since max temp today is 89 and it hadnt even hit hottest part of the day yet. So I put them out and come back 30-40 minutes later and the thermometer I placed next to them is at 120!!!

    I panicked and brought them back in. A few of the leaves on each plant are majorly droopy like really limp but most of the other leaves seem fine. I watered them (they were due today anyway) immediately and put them back
    In the box under the normal lights.

    Is there anything else I can do? Are these limp leaves going to come bAck or should I snip them?
  2. You'll be good, if the leaf isn't over 50% dead, keep it. Watch and be surprised how quick she jumps back, they're tough plants :)

    I've had overheating issues getting up to like 110 and it looked DEAD. Threw some water in the pot, lowered the temps, few hours later, perked right back up.

    Good luck!
