    Talking I have a truncata seedling

    I started some seeds back in Jan and Feb. I had them planted in containers like this.

    I wasn't sure if these were good to use. I liked the tupperwares because they have clear lids and vent holes. And I thought the cubes would be good because they are clear, let in lots of light and can be stacked.

    I was thinking nothing was going to happen and I opened one of the tupperwares today and found this.

    A sprout. I'm thrilled. Now I had some albomarginata sprouts last year. About five, but they all died and never made any secondary growth for me. Sucks to have a success then have it taken from you. So what do I do with these now? They're still in those tubs covered up under grow lights.

    I see at least 2 seedlings in that pic. Get the majority to germinate and then slowly acclimatize to normal growing conditions. I am guessing that high humidity, although it does promote germination, it may also promote conditions where fungal diseases start going nuts....

    Yeah there's a second one. How would you recommend I sprout then? I don't want my next batch I try to get contaminated. That's for sure. How long should I wait for the others if they even sprout at all? Then I guess just pull the lid back a little everyday huh? Thanks for the help.

    I had mine in a plastic bag so . slowly opened it up a little bit every day. I guess the bag method for TC neps or newly transplanted helis, cut off a corner and make holes in bag bigger over time. then into an area where I could mist in the morning before work. But I know jack about growing neps so get a second opinion ...

    Congratulations Des! I also have some truncata seedlings that recently germinated. Good luck with the rest of your seed!

    Thanks. I'm thrilled and worried all at the same time. That's great you have some too. Thanks, though I think I may give up on the others soon. They seem to have been too old.

    Good luck! I had some, but they have almost all died out...it would appear that they need a very acid PH to survive long term...
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
