These are my double & triple flowers 45 different kind seedlings (500) from Mr. Ko, I plant them on 7/15, they are one week old 7/22, they are in my green house with direct sun 115 degree hope they will be ok.
Did you use any chemical fertilizer?
Hello there...I would be very careful with direct sun at 115 degrees, can you provide some kind of shading for them especially during the hottest hours? Maybe standing those trays in a water bath would help by creating a microclimate (I'm assuming the planting trays have no drainage holes?) Newly emerged seeds do require rather moist conditions rather than the gritty fast draining mix the oldies prefer as they don't like to dry out at the roots. I think they will be drying too rapidly given that heat/mix combo. I too hope they will be OK for you :)
You are certainly growing a mini forest...what are your plans for all of them?
Here in Brazil I sow and leave in direct sun, temperatures range from 28ÃÂºC to 35ÃÂºC, has no problems, you just do not let the substrate dry.
A simple rule for adeniuns: the more sun, the more they grow.
"More sun, more they grow". As long as you acclimatized them to it could you have adeniums under 24hr grow lights?
Wow so many seedlings. Please keep us update. Where are you located?
Relve & Jason wipf - I do agree with you the more sun the faster & healthier the plants are. I don't use any fertilizer on the seedling what would you suggest Relve.
Gill - I did drill the holes for the container, my mix are 80% vermiculite+20% perlite, then laid down the seeds then dress top with turface. I want to see if I can get some double or triple flower out of these seedling .
Mark - I'm from Texas USA, will keep seedlings update.
Hi, yes, realise 'more sun faster they grow' syndrome but was just concerned as they are so small and need to be kept moist at all times.
Thanks GrilI I'll make sure to keep them moist.
Where you located in Texas?
I'm in the DFW area, Kirk and Marie are in Houston.
Hi Lonnie, I am in Arlington, Tx
I live just South of Ft. Worth and work in Grand Prairie.
I just received seeds from the same vendor. I will plant 7/1-2 when the moon phase is favorable. I see trades in the future!! LOL
sure Lonnie, maybe we can trade in the future, I will update my seedlings picture every week, you should sow seed right now, so they can be harden off before winter hit.
I will plant the new seeds this Friday or Saturday.
I currently have nine seedlings that are about two months old. I also have plant stands in the house if I need to bring them in for the winter.
