LOTS of babies off one leaf

tmc16March 30, 2011

Hi,I need some advice please. I have a leaf I rooted in a small single serve applesauce cup, I have counted at least 40 baby leaves. Should I separate them since there are so many or wait until they are the size of dimes. They are all doing very well but the space is so small I'm wondering if there will be a problem as they get bigger. Thanks for any help.

you can lift your "plug" and pot it up in a larger pot with more soil.
Then your babies will have a chance to grow bigger and stronger.

Normally you do not need all of them - so look if you can chip 1 or 2 babies from the side and try to pot them.
