I had a couple seedlings and sadly the cat knocked the pot over and they died. Your plants look great

I got them from a recommendation on the forum from (adenium center) and I got I would say 95% germination rate and when I ordered he gave me so much extra seeds and one extra package of a different unknown variety it was unlabeled it just said new variety on that pack so I will have to wait and see

If you would like some of mine I'm up for sharing just let me know and when the weather is more stable there yours

Beautiful!! Just beautiful. I sadly lost about 90% of my seedlings ;(.
I would do just about anything to have 1% of your collection :-). Lol. I'm starting some seeds as well / gonna try it again and hope it works. But I have a bad feeling - if you happen to have extra seeds/ or anything :-). Please keep me in mind - Stunning collection!!!!

Hey kittie I would love to share with you send me a p.m and we can go from there as well as chuy

Chuy what happen???? Looks like u let them dry out or something what did u use to start them? What I have realized is they like to stay moist at these stages not wet but moist and slowly I change my watering habits to alow them to dry a little more each week in between watering.

I gave them soooo much love that I killed them. I can honestly say that the mix was the exact mix that Laura uses (exactly it)!! I spent hours babying them and I think I should have left them alone a bit - but I was so excited being my first time attempting this I was excited to see them grow! Now I am just shocked and sad that almost All of them are gone! :(

Hey guys I haven't checked my email yet sorry busy at work I will soon as I get home today and get some babies to there new homes :)

Thanks Josh but I'm sure yours are excellent

Chuy to be honest babying them may have been the death of them in my opinion they liked being left alone and neglected but at they same time they must stay moist.

I'm not sure what mix you use but it looks that it drains to fast for the early stages 9 adenium again that is my opinion
I'm all for fast draining mixes but some time they drain to fast for seedlings and alow the roots to dry up which is what looks what happen to yours

I have the same problem with soils sometimes, they drain so fast that even a small spritz from my spray bottle leaks right thru the soil out the bottom of the pot and then I get iffy on if I should water it some more in case more of the water exited the pot then allowed for the plant to drink!!
we all tend to baby our plants in some way or another I still gotta learn to take a step back myself but ive been doing better - I just gotta muster up the courage to separate and repot my baby plants that are still in the same pots with there mothers, its starting to get a lil crowded in a few of my mini 1.5in pots and im not sure they will be completely happy sharing a pot that size with anything growing bigger by the days!

and oh, boy! I cant wait to get your e-mail and receive one of your babies ...(or 10 ;-) ..) lol, I forgot to ad my address so just e-mail me back and ill send you my info if and when you need it! I already cleared a nice lil spot for your plant to go and I will be sure to send you updated pictures!
