11 Month Old Seedlings
« on: December 11, 2008, 16:10:20 »
Here are some seedlings that I planted during February 2008.
I must say I was very surprised to see how fast they had grown. One or two of these seedlings are pushing there fourth leaf.

I measured the leave and it was 4 cm not bad for 11 months

These are yellow broadleaf seedlings and they are two years old.
I wish they were 4 cm broad. The motherplant had leaves of 90 mm.

After 18 months they were 30 mm broad not to bad for yellow seedlings

Then you get the real slow growers.

Thank you Joyce, I must say I had great success the past two years since I started using a very coarse mix. I can water the plants everyday and the roots won't rot. The plants are standingoutside year in and out and we had a lot of rain the past winter. I did not loose one plant due to root rot.

Hi Cobus,
I'd also love to know what's in your mix  -  it looks like an orchid mix from the
photos.
Very healthy seedlings.

Cheers,

Di.

I use 12 mm milled bark and nothing else. I make sure that there are no finings in the mix to prevent it from clogging up.
I only use fertiliser from Prof Hugo van Rooyen.
Christene the Chinese Picotee's are also seeds from Lilly.
They do just fine.
