Hi, Ju. I didn't know you posted on here. Good to see you. Looks like your having a good winter sowing year! Congratulations, your seedlings look great!
I'm growing some daylily seedlings and I have some Lily seeds under pressure in a dark closet.
You should get Debra to join in here at ATP. She would love it here.

That is a seed festival. Fantastic Job!

I'm trying to keep my seed sowing to a minimum since I have to catch up with the weeds from last year. I'm going to sow more daylily seeds outside this Spring. I winter sowed some columbine seeds. They came from my Nora Barlow, will be interesting to see what they look like next year.

Do you keep the bamboo in containers?

Your baby bamboo is a cute little guy. I use anything I can put dirt in for growing seeds. Never thought about pet food bags, great idea! Let me know if you want more daylily seeds. I still have hundreds. Whistling

Found some Linium (blue flax) seeds. I'm going to have to start them soon.
Have seeds from this houseplant. Pictured below. Have no idea what the plant is but going to try growing some of the seeds. It acts like a succulent, meaning it thrives on my forgetfulness. Hilarious!

I do the food bags because sometimes I get a super grower that needs lots of root room fast ,

Your plant looks like the Century plant family , I have a few variegated and all green , Nice though , as you said , Whether you care for them or not, they grow anyway , Hilarious!
Why so many like native plants , They take care of themselves ,,

I still have a dozen or so crosses to start when I get time ,,

Yes, I love the natives. Nothing brings the pollinators in better.

Experimenting with SuperThtive on a couple seedlings. I've never used it before, we'll see what happens. If it kills them, there are plenty of seeds to replace them.
