Thanks for the update Michael!    :thanks:

Your seedlings looks very healthy....  :good:
-how often you water them at this stage??

And sad that the green stem seedling died... but hopefully all your other seedlings will make you happy...   :)

Hi mark,
I water maybe every 2 to 3 weeks...honestly only when I remember :) the mix does dry out quite quickly and the pot sits by the window that gets afternoon sun in my dining room.

Hi Michael

You said those mirabilis are sitting in your dining room.  I guess you must be talking to them every time you have your meals.  No wonder the seedlings are so healthy and happy!  Now I know the secret ! :mmm:

 :surprise: :surprise: :surprise:You certainly have something going on we do not know about Master Michael .
 I have some Mirabilis seedlings that have put on NO leaves in 4 years .
I think I will repot them into coarse Pine bark and stones and see if that will make a difference !!!

Regards,

what is the mix they are currently in Lionel? I am really no expert. I don't give them that much TLC except the occasional weak liquid feed when i water. my house temperature is fairly constant and they only get the afternoon sun from the window. I do look at them everyday though but i dont think my stares are doing anything... :)

     Thanks, Mark, for bumping this thread!  I don't know how I missed it.
     Good work, Michael, those are fine seedlings, from start until present.   :welldone:

Your mirabilis seedlings look very healthy and show also a similar size. 
I have two mirabilis seedlings which are growing all their life together in the same pot and in the same soil, but their size is certainly not the same  ;D

Hi Heidi,
What mix do you use? The big one looks good but the roots aren't very long. What size pot do you use?

I have one seedling that is smaller than the rest too. I haven't gathered enough guts to repot them yet. They are growing out another new leaf at the moment so I will leave them alone for now.

Hello Michael ,
                      I used my normal potting mix ,and have mislaid them somewhere in the Nursery .
Maybe they have grown and I am unaware of the fact .
The Mirabilis Hybrids are growing fine in coarse Pine bark .
Regards ,
              Lionel.

Like Lionel I use my normal potting soil, but 1/3 of the height of the pot is for drainage. In the beginning I used a soil mixture similar to yours. Then I attended the mirabilis tour in 2010 and saw mirabilis growing in the habitat. When I returned back to Germany I immediately changed to normal soil  ;D. But what works for me does not necessarily work for other people too.
I have repotted the 2 seedlings and my mature mirabilis several times and did not have a problem, but I have heard just recently, that sometimes mirabilis like to 'sulk' after repotting.

The leaf length of the bigger seedling is 50 cm. I know there are mirabilis with very long roots, but maybe there is also a individual difference for each plant???

My mirabilis seedlings at 3 years
« Reply #28 on: June 02, 2015, 03:31:20 »
hi all,
I spent sometime in the weekend repotting my 3 year old mirabilis seedlings. The big roots of the plants seemed to stop growing once they hit the bottom of the pot. I have repotted them in a much bigger and deeper pot with 50/50 pumice/potting mix with some bulb fertiliser. Hopefully they will like it and rocket away..... :smile: here is wishful thinking....
