Adenium seedlings - first time planting

juneyp(UK 8a)February 10, 2013

Planted 10 seeds on 6th January. 5 x Adenium Honey and 5 x Adenium Sunday. One Honey (back right) has germinated and two Sunday (front left and middle) have germinated. None of the other seeds have germinated.
The seedlings today are about 3-4cm tall and I am pondering whether they need to be potted on in bigger pots.

They will not need to be transplanted from those cell pots for some time.
They seem to be somewhat etiolated (long). They probably need more light or possibly the light source closer to seedlings.
With only one seed per cell, they can stay in those until they have atleast 4-5 true leaves.
I am seeing the photo fairly dark.

Thanks Rick. I've just set my sun lamp to add light to them. I haven't got a heat source near the windows so I am reluctant to move the tray.
Locoguy, I am really impressed with all your seedlings.

I will add more pics in a few days.
