    I'd use at least a few of those Jiffy trays so they have some chance to survive and be transplanted to a new suitable pot. Whenever I've planted things too closely together they seem to die off rather early. If you start them now maybe by next summer they'll be a sellable size. Try selling the baby plants on ebay or something, even at only $3 each that's $3000, nothing to laugh at when looked at as a whole.

    Yep, I did that with my capensis "all red" and just pot out what I need... They stay really small when packed all together like that. Does look neat though, I'll try and remember to get you a picture

    Don't get me wrong though! You can grow a lot of plants in one pot and they'll do just fine.... Here is an old bog thing I did, the second picture is from may of 2006... I think I tore it apart a few months after this pic, the vfts I had planted in it were mostly gonners but there were a few that hung in there- They looked like crap.

    I threw something like 100 seeds in a 2x2 square pot about a year ago. Then this summer I separated them and I had something like 25 good sized dews left, with little babies everywhere! I also did another pot which I forgot to water and only one survived. It's still alive today and I call it the hardiest capensis. Hey JM, I have like a billion capensis seeds and I could do a SASE, PM me if interested.

    andrew i LOVE that minibog! gorgeous!

    upper, try mixing in some sarras or something to get a nice effect like what andrew did. Just an idea. If not, and you just want 1005 capensis madness, i suggest a 4'x 1' rectangle pot. That way they (all 1000 capes) can grow to their full potential and still look like a dewy forest.
