Tropaeolum azureum repotting
« on: December 03, 2018, 08:45:39 AM »
Hi everyone,
I sowed 25 seeds of Tropaeolum azureum in a 7x7cm pot.

two weeks ago, 2 seeds germinated but no more coming out ever since.

Should I repot the 2 seedlings now? How to pulling out the seedlings without disturbing other 23 seeds?

I also sowed Tropaeolum hookerianum ssp. austropurpureum, but so far 0 germination

Donít try to re-pot them. If possible carefully slip the entire seed pot into a larger pot containing very well-drained sandy soil. Provide some sticks as a climbing frame and let the seedlings grow on. Once they become dormant you should be able to rescue any viable non-germinated seed and can pot up the seedling tubers.
