African Orchid seedlings

cindip(z7 NC)January 1, 2005

I had ordered some African Orchid impatiens seeds back in November and just couldn't wait to see if I could get some to germinate. Out of the 5 seeds I sowed, 4 sprouted. They are now about 2 inches tall. Do I need to pinch them so they will bush out or just leave them alone? Thanks for any info.

You can pinch them, but I would make sure they had 2 sets of real leaves first.

Thanks SpringCherry. I will try that. I had them in a window sill and it has been so warm here that I had to move them. Some of the leaves looked like they were getting burned. I will go and pinch them now.
