These are my first Plumeria seedlings. No id and the color is a surprise. It was bought as a mixed package. Some more on the way, but those are still seeds. That are seeds with id. Although the color still Will be a surprise as seeds do not come true from color. At least they are germinating. So I am already happy.
Love all plants

Hi @mary. These are from november 16th. They do germinate rather fast with some warmth. I did sow a few last week and they are already getting roots.

Thank you @Hetty. Can you perhaps tell me When I should repot them.? Or can they stay like this for a while. The biggest one is getting his second leave pair now.

Wait for at least the second set of true leaves to repot.
Oh, and you can't tag someone by using their name, you have to use the handle. So @Hetty won't get me, but @Dutchlady1 will....

The second set of true leaves. Thanks. Will do that. What is the best soil for them. I think it must be well draining?
Sorry about the tag @Dutchlady1
Will remember it.

@Adeniumgirl started my seeds Nov.22. There are a few roots and leaves and I need to toss a few because they look moldy. Thought I had that covered since I used H2O2. (@Hetty..thank you the name reminder *Blush* haven't had my second cup of tea yet!)
