Seedling repotting

I was repotting a few of my seedlings and decided to show of some of the roots. These are close to a year old. They were getting some light from the edge of the cup. I also have not ever trimmed the roots to these. They are all natural. I don't even think I've pinched the tops. I need to keep better notes on my stock rather than trying to remember each one.

This one suffered a little sun burn last year but has recovered quite nicely.

What excellent pictures! Kirk, thanks for posting!

I'm still waiting for warmer weather to try to start my seeds.

Looking good Kirk!!!

Im Going to try my hand at cutting the base and trying some "centipede roots". I need to go back and see about the straight cut on the bottom. Did you use a sealant on the bottom after it dried for a few ?

They look so healthy!!!

Glad you had a great Birthday!!!

Take care,

Kirk- lookin very nice and healthy. Thanks for sharing. Mine are almost a year and are not lookin half as good as yours. :/


RE: Seedling repotting

Thanks, everyone!

Laura, on the one's I had cut I did not seal but if I do it again I probably will. I believe I did it like cuttings. Wiped off any bleeding, dip in rooting powder and let sit a few days. Well, the major root cuts.
