Kylie seeds....Oh boy!
Kylie's got her fingers out of her garden sooner or later...lol. Tis' the season for busy busy members.
I have at least 16 seeds well germinated in my water gel crystals which have now been delicately transplated into 2x2" pots. 12 came from Kylie's batches of seeds whilst only 4 Super Pink have come up from all their seeds 4/40 or so. I did stop decorking the SP as any that I had decorked that even removed a tad bit of skin died. So the group left in cork I'll have to wait and see.
About 1/2 of the germinated potted seeds have come through the soil, just mostly peeking through...but I'm releived.
I was scared for them all, as I used a seed heat mat. After about 14 hours on I checked the temperature and dang if the thing was reading well over 90 deg. What the heck is that about? I was so sure I cooked them that I uprooted one just to see how it looked, but o.k. I imagined trashing the whole tray and all. I was so mad...lol.
Suffice to say, the mat has been removed from below the cells, having germination done anyway and I stuck it under the bigger pots I have for my double pink Monika's, one which is not doing so well so, by the way, I should of NOT have removed there scraggly looking branches until the outdoor grown branches came in well leaved. Oh well, live and learn. I believe it was Tim who advised me not to but TOO LATE! If I had only waited 1 day....sigh....but it's not dead yet!
Well happy anyway! Have tons of new ones to. I only need one of each to survive me and I'll be very happy...lol. Not that I know how any of the seedlings are going to come out...
I have to question eBay's dergardener's Langenbuscher and Ferbeuer. I got the seeds and the cork is not only still on the seeds which you wouldn't expect when buying SEEDS, but the pieces of cork are as small as the Cassie's Curls. Not anything you'd expect for paid for seeds that should be for a robust growing big brug! Very immature and their very pale color implies they are dryed out - when adding moisture as is 24 hour pre-soak, they turned as brown as dark coffee grounds.
Any input on this? I could post a picture, but as small as they are in the picture they are smaller from their thin sides, just can't stand them up to provide the angle.
I thought the same of their Super Pink corked seeds, but these are even way worse, all very small, and I paid way more and got way less see.
