eastern white cedar


Germinationpalooza/seedling update. Order of photos;

  1. Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis) seedlings pushing out adult leaves. One appears to have chlorosis which is odd since I used the same media mix for all of them… splitting/repotting is gonna be a big problem for these root sensitive babies.
  2. Allium seedlings. The worst of the mold has dissipated but it appears that only a few seedlings came out of it all.
  3. Magnolia tripetala, Magnolia virginiana, and Cercidiphyllum japonicum. The Katsuras have been getting too tall for the growlights (they are at maximum height!) so I may need to move them somewhere else- IF I CAN FIND ANYWHERE D8 I need spring outside to warm up and hurry up so that they can go outside!
  4. Kousa Dogwood (Cornus kousa) and european honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum). With the extra Lonicera gone there’s now a itty bit more shuffling room for the plants there.
  5.  Half of the White Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) seedlings (the other half are at the farm). Still fighting repotting urges with them.
  6. Two pots of Autumn Squill (Scilla autumnalis) seedlings. Still looking good… for bulb seedlings.
  7. 7 Tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) seedlings in the big flowerpot, and 3 Golden Rain Tree (Koelreuteria paniculata) seedlings in the small pots. The latter is interesting for its seedling leaves; so unlike the ovate type that I’m used to seeing for seedlings in general.
  8. 2 Mangolia acuminata seedlings… there better be more than just that cause otherwise I wasted a huge amount of seed starter media!!! Bigger than Magnolia virginiana seedlings, but smaller than Magnolia tripetala seedlings.

Tonight or this weekend I plan to sow my Ginkgo seeds from the fridge next (right on schedule). I gotta reorganize my growing spaces again O-O;;;
