Seedling repotting

kodom087 z9aMarch 20, 2014

I was repotting a few of my seedlings and decided to show of some of the roots. These are close to a year old. They were getting some light from the edge of the cup. I also have not ever trimmed the roots to these. They are all natural. I don't even think I've pinched the tops. I need to keep better notes on my stock rather than trying to remember each one.

This one suffered a little sun burn last year but has recovered quite nicely.

Looking good Kirk!!!

Im Going to try my hand at cutting the base and trying some "centipede roots". I need to go back and see about the straight cut on the bottom. Did you use a sealant on the bottom after it dried for a few ?

They look so healthy!!!

Glad you had a great Birthday!!!

Take care,

Thanks, everyone!

Laura, on the one's I had cut I did not seal but if I do it again I probably will. I believe I did it like cuttings. Wiped off any bleeding, dip in rooting powder and let sit a few days. Well, the major root cuts.
