Help with washingtonia sprouts

earthworm73(WA z8)September 16, 2011

I started some washingtonia seeds using the baggie method. The germination has been staggered. The first ones to sprout I waited until I saw an inch or so of root and a that little white side "root" or "stem" before I placed them into their individual tall pot. But I think I screwed up. Looked on the net and most are recommending waiting until they have their first green leaf to transplant to pots. Was it okay to do what I did?

I think you're fine. The article probably referred to seedlings started in small peat pots or seed starter trays. You gave them a jump start, but I'd get them in pots ASAP. Be gentle, as their shoots can easily break at that stage.

Congrats.
