I have some babies that are almost ready to pot up, but do they have enough color to survive? How can I get them to "green up" a little?
Patience! Do not repot them until they have plenty of green. Do some watering with a fish emulsion and make sure that they are in a warm spot - low temperature increases whiteness.
They don't look big enough (to me) for separating yet. I have used epsom salts in the water to green up some of mine. I haven't tried fish emulsion, but it may work better.
Thank you both, hopefully by the time they are big enough to separate, they will have greened up some. I did get some fish emulsion, so I'll give it a try.....
Both approaches should work - nitrogen in fish emulsion stimulates the greening - and magnesium in Epsom salt helps to build chlorophyll.
I watered with the fish emulsion, and the babies seemed to both grow and green up. Went ahead and separated them, there were five plants total. All but one seems to have enough green, so I'll have to see how that one does. But so far, all look good.
Looks like it worked really well. I hope they grow nicely for you.
