My mirabilis seedlings
« on: December 03, 2012, 00:36:29 »
Hi just wanted to share a few pictures of the journey of my mirabilis seedlings. The seeds were bought from Hein and I had 100% germination.

This picture was taken at one month old in July this year.

Forgot to mention that they are growing in 50/50 perlite/vermiculite and they get weak liquid feed once every 2 months. They seem happy.

Wow Michael, judging by the speed your mirabilies are growing and cared for, they will flower in less than 5 years!   :good:

Very nice!

Is it typical of mirabilis seedlings to germinate with such a long connection between the seed and the plant? I've never seen this in any of my miniatas or interspecifics. Normally, the seed stays very close to the plant.

Some really good looking seedlings you have growing there. Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards

A lot of people's biggest regret when they pass away one day, is that they when they had the time, was too reluctant to tell the people that was important to them, how much they apreciated them

Re: My mirabilis seedlings- updated photo at 12 months
« Reply #8 on: July 02, 2013, 04:05:23 »
they are now at 12 months old, growing well and faster than my other clivia seedling at this rate. Hopefully I can see flowers sooner than I thought.

And then there is a strange seedling that started out with a bit of pigmentation but it disappeared to become quite a green seedling as you can see in the 3rd photo.

Hello Micheal,

The seedling in the last picture looks like something special, maybe a yellow mirabilis?

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Wu Jin,
I sure hope so that it will have yellow flowers...but i need to keep it alive first...it is the weakest seedling at the moment.

Thanks Lionel.

Your welcome Nick. I try my best to grow these little ones :)
