Aren't they precious? I love the little sprouts.

Here are 3 of mine. I'm enthralled that I got something to grow from a seed, I've never had much luck before. Thank you Mike Thumbs up

They are sooo cute! I love it! How old is the middle one? Do you plan to clip them or just let it grow? I too was surprised to get seeds to come up. nodding

All 3 are Black Fire from the same batch, I planted them about 3 months ago. The one on the right got kind of deformed when I tried to remove the seed casing. I stopped when I saw what was happening and it has grown a little crooked. That's ok, I love it anyway. I may try and bury it a little deeper when I transplant them, cover up the really thin part of the caudex.

Mike, do you think I can give them some weak fertilizer now?

Jonna, Speaking of fertilizer I found a liquid fish one that I use on my seedlings. I read on one of the Thailand Adenium sites that it what they use.

I've yet to find a fish emulsion type fertilizer down here but I do water them with pond water, maybe that helps Rolling on the floor laughing I'm not grinding up any of my fish though Thumbs down

I'll try some weak miracle gro type fert and see how it goes.

i will wait several more months and then decide when to top IF i top you can always cut later but once you cut its hard to put back!!

Mike, I have plants that want to go UP and that's THAT. Cut the top, and get one shoot continuing the climb. I believe if there are tiny buds, shoots? around the bottom, then you can get branches.

I agree Melissa but don't you thing their babies are a little to small ti pinch at this time I like to wait until there re 6-8 in tall and then decide. That seems like when i start noticing side branches or not

Umm, I should not give pinching/pruning advice, as I do not cut my plants at all. But then I'm growing shrubs, not house plants.
