dave On February 25, 2023 Potted up
Potted them up into 4" pots. I waited too long, these are sickly looking. They wanted a bigger pot LONG ago and I procrastinated. This plant is very fast growing and should be potted up on a quick schedule. I expect they'll explode with growth in their new 4" pots and will want something even bigger in a week or two.
