I am Sure you never get as hot there as We do in the summer. One year, when I had a flock that was laying a lot of eggs, I was keeping them on the counter. I only AC the LR/DR, and there is a door, so the kitchen is hardly Ever AC'd.
Temperature was in the high 90s. Many eggs exPLODED! :gig

On a broken Peony tuber, an bud decided to grow.

I grew some Dahlias from seeds this year and pinched them to encourage the side shoots. Instead of discarding the pinched tops, I took them as cuttings and tried propagating them. I don't expect a 100% successful rate, but obviously, some are doing better than others.

So, if 50% survive and root properly, more new plants will be there.
