|There are many seedlings around my Rivina Humulis (pigeon-berry) plant. Will these transplant without much problem? I just now put a few seedlings in 4 in pots to grow awhile before planting. People are asking me for seedlings but online I primarily see seeds as the way to propagate. How long is it from seedling to full grown plant?|

|Warm welcome from the Pacific NW. Although I am unfamiliar with pigeonberry, it appears to be a native in much of the US. What area are you in? It also appears to be well-liked by birds, which is often how native plants are propagated. My guess is your potted up seedlings would be a good way to share with friends. Someone more familiar with this particular plant will chime in shortly. Enjoy the site.|

|Hi river8, and a big to ATP. So glad to meet your. |
What a lovely plant, it is new to me also.
It seems to be a tough plant if given the right growing conditions. I see it can also be started from cuttings. I would think you could make a transition to a new home if the roots were protected during transit.
Here is what we have in the database. Rouge plant (Rivina humilis)

|Welcome to ATP! |
There was a discussion about this a couple of months ago in this thread here:
The thread "Pennies in the birdbath..." in Ask a Question forum
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
