I'm raising my first batch of hosta seedlings and it's a lot of fun to watch them come up. I have a few yellows, and a couple that (at least at the moment) seem to have wavy leaves of some sort. (I know that's subject to change as the plant matures.) I have one that's almost white, and it's growing slowly but I expect it won't make it.

At any rate, I figured these couple of seedlings looked interesting. Do they appear to have yellow streaks to you? (They're out of mixed streaked parents. I got the seeds from Chris at Hallson's.)

Way to go, the first one for sure and more than likely the 2nd one too.

Have fun growing them!

Maybe I'll name the first one Jeff. ;)

I'm wondering when to replant them. I've read that hostas benefit from frequent replanting when they're small. Do I wait until they have a pair of leaves? More?
