sorry, need help again Sungold seedlings
If anyone gets a chance, please look at these, I could really use some input: https://plus.google.com/photos/104467923746994449105/albums/5764068270189716033?authkey=CImBooiXyoti
The first one is the one I got into a big pot. It's been in there for about 2 weeks. It has not grown much, except for some underground leaves that I didn't cut off right before I buried it pretty good. I took those off a day or two ago. (The other mistakes I made was I didn't spread out the already-boundish roots very much, after letting them get potbound. Three rookie errors so far.)
My question is: should I leave it in there, or take it out and plant another seed, or make a clone? The plants that went into big pots at my friend's house -- same litter, but she's near the coast so it's not blistering hot -- grew ginormously as soon as they got some space, but mine hasn't.
Otoh, the leaves on my little plant are very nice and green and sturdy, *except* for the curled ones at the top. I guess whatever new energy it had went into the underground leaves that I didn't cut off well enough. What do people think, up or down on this plant?
My second question is: as for the seedlings still in the too small pots, are they goners? Should I clone? Or would they still grow if I got them in a big pot? I have another big pot, I just need to get more soil.
It will get much hotter soon, so that makes me reluctant to start all over with new seeds/clones, because I thought someone said here that if it gets too hot, then the plants won't like that either. But I will start over if I have to.
Your input is appreciated!! I love this website. I've been reading lots of things in this forum, but it's so much info that I get a bit lost.
