    Good job! So how many sprouts do you have so far out of 30??

    Sure, I can provide an update I think I mentioned one of the two I moved to separate pots was not doing well.. it finally kicked the bucket about a week ago. I kept trying more water and less water to see what it wanted but it never did anything. The other 4 are doing great though! My tallest one is just over 5" while the other two are just over 4" (The ones on the second shelf are the larger ones, they are a bit cooler from being in front of the cooler as well as in less strong. So who knows the exact reason they're bigger....)
    Enjoy!

    Jimscott: I collected a whole lot of dead dyed up leaves from my garden and burnt them in pot poured water on them once it had burnt down poured off the water and sieved it leaveing a nasty black water which I poured slowly onto the mix.
    Only 2 so far which is not great but its only been 1 month so maybe more will come soon. Both were scarified.
    Its been really cold recently though so maybe it just too cold for them to germinate.
    Thanks for posting your pics so fast
    Your plants are looking amazing I really hope I get some that big and healthy. They are obviously catching there own food well. Clearly they like it cool and well ventilated as well.

    Alright, 4 months and a request later I'll go ahead and give an update. The two plants on the top shelf are still smaller and stand at about 6" tall. The plants on the second shelf, which are in the draft of the cooler are larger plants but I believe this is due to lower light levels and not more content plants. When you look at the stalk of the plants you can clearly see the plants on the top shelf are compact as they should be and the plants on the second shelf show spacing between each new leaf indicating etiolation/lack of appropriate light (imo) feel free to chime in on that.
    That being said, all plants are doing great and the smell they release is really strong, easily the strongest thing in the greenhouses. I have moved the two from the second shelf onto the top shelf and will begin a new test as of today. I will continue to water 3 plants as I always have (add an inch or two of water to the tray when it dries out for a few days) and the other I'm going to try and keep at least some water in the tray at all times. I'll try to monitor this plant closely though in case it decides to decline. I'm contemplating instead using that plant as a test for outside.... Which would you rather see? And now... pictures!

    They need more light.

    I agree, they need a LOT more light Andrew. The leaf nodes should be very tight together; not so far apart as in your last photo.
