    Very nice. What kind of soil are they in? What kind of light do they receive?

    Soil mix is 50% peat, 30% silica sand, 20% perlite. They get good light in the greenhouse all day. The sun is directly on it from around 9am to 3pm (this time of year). They're under a 20% white shade cloth to prevent the greenhouse from getting too hot. I water them very sparsely and keep them in deep pots. I think that keeping them a bit dryer allows them to develop better root systems and rhizomes.

    Fantastic. They are all so healthy. And that red seed raised is jaw-dropping. Nearly black on my screen.

    Beautiful, and so early in the season!

    Mine will be a mess for a few more weeks, after a ton of recent replanting . . .

    Thanks! Yes, it's quite dark. I love it!

    I just finished all of my repotting a couple of weeks ago now. They're taking off quite well, especially last 10 days or so. Now I have to get to potting up a ton of tissue cultured plants in need of deflasking. The potting never stops!
