These guys were started early last year. Thanks to those that sent along extra seed back then!!
They have been living under 2 CFBs running for 16 hours a day. I don't want to run them for 24 since I don't think the VFTs can take that (plus the DW doesn't "want the neighbors to think i am running a grow house"). There are three different purp crosses and one standard group of VFTs in four different containers in the tray. My 4 year old removed the tags from the tall lid I put on the tray... so now I have no idea as to what the purp crosses actually are. Yeah! I just periodically mist them with a weak fert and so far they seem to be happy.
This is the first set of plants i have grown from seed and it's neat to see the color difference from one plant to the next, how some are so heavily veined while others have no veining at all, and then the growth difference.
I will be setting up my seeds for the perennial garden after a few months and plan at that time to separate out the vfts and maybe divide up the sarrs at that time to give them some space. I had stratified the seeds in chopped spag which took off as well. So if anyone is interested in a trade for a bunch of the spag.. let me know. The whole right side of the tray is now pure spag that I don't really need anymore.
