Another month has gone by and the 2014 seedlings continue to flourish. I continue to water them twice a day with a good soaking on the weekend. They live under lights, indoors, with approximately 12 hours of light a day. I do my best to mimic what is happening outside. I’m excited to see what these guys will look like as they go through their first leaf renewal, but experience tells me that I have at least a month, and maybe more, to wait before that happens.
The Aucampiae seedlings are getting so BIG! In this pot, I have a mix including Storm’s Snowcap and Kurumen form. The seeds were purchased from three different sources so I should have a nice variety here. I love the deep purple tones of some of the seedlings.
The Dorotheae pot continues to grow at a slow pace. I can see some brand new seedlings so I think some slow pokes are still germinating. There are also a few really large seedlings which makes me really wonder what I’m going to get out of this pot! I sowed seeds for Zorro in this pot so I hope for some really stunning plants.
If you followed the blog while the 2013 seedlings were developing, you’ll know that I didn’t have much luck with Otzeniana last year. I have quite a few robust specimens this year so I’m hoping my luck has turned around! Most of the Otzeniana seeds came from Hong Kong, so I looked far and wide for these guys.
And finally, I have a ‘mish mash’ pot; it has an eclectic mix of Verruculosa, Karasmontana, and Lesliei! I ended up with a few packets of misc seeds so I just threw them together to see what would happen. I think this will be the prettiest pot once the first true leaves appear 🙂
