We came from here The thread "Seedling progress #2" in Daylilies forum

Its raining again this morning on the Gulf Coast so the blooms may not look very well today. These are the better ones that were blooming yesterday.
(LARRY GRACE X MISSISSIPPI MAN)XDREAM RUNNER[X HAPPY HAPPY 5.50" 18 month
I have decided to keep this seedling if it sets seed because it has a great 30" scape and is putting up a rebloom scape already. I put pollen on it yesterday to make sure it's fertile.

Love the Dora's First in Line seedling, I'm a sucker for orange, and it is such a soft orange.

I really like the edge on LJB X MB. The color on the sepals of the Alabama Sunrise X Martin Blondeel is fantastic. I really enjoy your seedling pics.

Those are all soooooo pretty -- I'm drawn to the first because of that eye in subdued colors, and also the third for the same reason -- very classy. And the last one draws my eyes to that great green throat. I love the edges on these, too.

My seedlings that I planted in January are getting ready to be potted up into gallon pots.

Fred, Michele or anyone that uses alfalfa pellets, I have a question. When I pot up my grown plants, I use this mix:

60% pinebark mulch
40% soil mix(miracle grow or similar)

add small amount of Fertilizer, alfalfa pellets and lime into this mix stir well!! (this mix is in the bottom of the pot) then I put a mound of soil with the fan setting on top of mound and cover with soil mix.

Then after planting the fan in the pot, I sprinkle fert,ap, and Lime on top and dress with more mulch so this handfull of mix is under the mulch and not setting on top of the soil. This has resulted in some really great plant growth. I'm very pleased with this mix for the larger plants. I just hope they bloom as well as the plants have grown!!!

With my baby seedlings I won't use the mound to set the fan on, I'll just plant the whole cup of soil and plant, less the cup of course. These will be put into pots that are gallon or gallon and half size. Also, Most of these cups of babies have two fans in them and I'll leave them just like this so I don't disturb the roots. I'll easily remove the cup and set the whole cup of soil and babies down into the pot.

Can I still put the fertilizer, pellets and lime in as I've done on the bigger plants? I don't want to kill my babies by putting in too much stuff but I want them to grow like my other plants have with this mixture. I'm just a little unsure what is best for them since I've always had problems with my babies not growing as I'd like. I know that too much can kill a small plant but not enough leaves me with little bity plants for a year or longer. So, any tricks of the trade???

Thanks ya'll and have a fun filled and blessed day, Mona

Mona, yes you can put the same stuff in as you do the mature plants, but just remember its best to use less if you are worried about over fertilizing. You can always add more later on.

Thanks Michele, I thought so, but I've got these little ones this far and didn't want to make some silly mistake and kill a bunch of them.

Those isles in the hybrizing area and are around 90 or 100 feet, the last 30 feet of each row is mine. It is a long trek down each one, wish there was walkways in between. We do have spots in the beds down near the poles that nothing is planted that we sometimes walk across, but once the daylilies near it clump up good we won't be able to do it.

Yeap, Everything I needed would always be on the other side of the row and I'd either have to have 2 of everything or I'd be building me a bridge across those beds!!!

I was making some rows with my pots today and I even skipped a few spots to allow me to walk between the 4 rows. I learned that lesson the hard way about leaving enough space to ease between pots to reach a bloom to add pollen. I broke bunches of scapes and of course it was always the million dollar one that I broke off!!!

Fred I love 1-2-5 ^ 6. Just beautiful. Also really like the sepals on the Martin Blondeel cross. I wonder if you can take the pale pattern bloom and use as a bridge to get a higher bud count and taller scape??

I love how organized and perfect everything looks, Michele, and your seedlings look absolutely beautiful! Puts me to shame, as I have everything on plywood tables and everything is all jumbled together. We keep having stray cats wander through our yard, and I can't stand the thought of some cat spraying my precious daylilies before I've even had a chance to see them bloom! But I guess that at some point I'm going to have to start putting pots on the ground... at some point... not yet!

And by the way, I love that STONE BEACON X ELECTRIC RED seedling.

It really rained yesterday morning and looking at the Weather Channel this morning it's going to do the same again.
I will keep the one with all the buds if the rebloom scape does near as well.
Looks like your doing everything right Mona, if its working don't change it.
Great looking seedlings Michele, I have got to get over there soon.
I was able to take a few photos after the rain yesterday, most that were blooming was pretty beat up.
