Question about Milkweed, please help!
I have milkweed vines (common, wild) coming up in my butterfly garden, but not nearly as thick an healthy as I would like.
My question is, when I grow seedlings they are thin and spindly, and I replant them into larger pots, but what does it take to make them nice and solid stems?
The only ones coming up in the garden, are from last year, and they are much thicker stems than the seedlings.
Anyway, is there any way to beef them up? Is pot space the big issue, because the roots need to get established in the dirt? Or is it just that it takes time for them to switch gears and get bigger? I'm so impatient. Thanks for any responses.
