The only 1 of 60 seeds that grew for me is "Addie". And she needs your help. She will be one year old this fall. She is not thriving and looking a little peaked. She had a bit of Osmocote early this summer. But I think she needs more. She was just transplanted into a big girl pot.

Hungry looking. Don't keep the whole potful of mix wet, only water/feed by the drop, or spoonful right around the tiny plant, letting the rest of the "dirt" be rather dry. Because, wet soil devoid of roots grows fungus and mold and other nasties.

Okie dokie. The soil was very dry when I repotted her. It seemed almost rock like! gasp. I changed up the soil she is in now and she seems better off. But I will start feeding her. Thank you!

Once the plant starts growing, gradually water a little more at a time. 1/8 strength of a 20-20-20 or some such numbers. Don't let it get completely dry, but if that happens, water with plain water, to avoid fertilizer burn.

Don't sit around staring at the plant, they are somewhat shy, and too much attention will make her nervous.
