I would wonder whether they had not grown yet this year, or whether they had made new growth that already died.

I meant packrats. European rats made it to Phoenix about 15 years ago, and are in the grass-lawn areas just a mile from me. But in my desert neighborhood they can't make it. Cats don't last long here...

My Phrag. QF Maria was eaten by rats. Before that it grew easily in semi/hydro and flowered a lot, even with my alkaline mineral-laden city water.
