I found four plants that are each in it's own planter. One was blooming and making fruits. I started watering and feeding them twice weekly, and they are all making babies madly. Wheee.

Now I have seeds to play with. I have tiny babies, but can anyone tell me at what size/diameter can I try to put the little buggars into individual pots? Do they have one long tap root that want to break off at the slightest jiggle?

Thanks in advance!


Babies next to Mama, in the planter, oh my.
