Hard getting a picture to focus on the new growth, best I could get for now.

Starting to put up another leaf. Tried using my phone this time.

These grow like Hellebore seedlings. Do they continue to put up leaves like this, or do they come up from underneath the soil at some point?

Had a light issue and had to start over again. Seems the CFL's were too much or had them to close and lost them all over a week period.

Seedlings that I had under CFL's, they are huge bulbs. I had thought these would be perfect for seedlings. One bulb burnt out after one week, so they were sent back.

I ended up buying an Led to replace the CFL's.
701307-0


Seedlings look a lot better growing under the LED.

Same seedling from the above post, better green growth under the LED.


Thinking I still have too much light. Had it at 25% at 16 inches above. Turned it down to 20% and see what happens for awhile.

Wondering about seed plug trays. Anyone grow Pulsatilla in these?

I found a site that sells 5 inch deep and think they are 2x2 inches square at the top. Come Fall I want to grow a couple hundred seedlings through the winter. 16 oz cups would take up to much space to grow that many.

I'm trying to get different plants growing throughout Spring/Summer/Fall for Honey bees.

Seedlings outside are starting to pop up. Will be interesting comparing growth from outdoors to indoors. I think it is, could see 6 so far.

There is no such thing as full spectrum fluorescent lamps - they are line emitters. "Full spectrum" has no meaning anyway.
Plants do not need full spectrum either - commercial growers traditionally used SON (all light in the red-orange-yellow) with a small amount of metal halide lamps to provide blue, to stop etiolation. For stimulating flowering, the cheapest option was standard GLS (the old wire in a bottle), which is full spectrum but heavily biased towards the red.

Think I have the right amount of light. Leaves kept getting burnt and turning brown.

First time growing these, seems the leaves are a pale green then turn dark green as they grow.

Hello,
I would like to know what your experiences with Pulsatilla seeds are like.

Catwheazle,

I received 3 species of Pulsatilla seed from the seed exchange and finally got around to planting them 2 weeks ago. I planted all at 20c under lights. I already have 2 species sprouted. I think this suggests that seed dry stored for at least 3 months may germinate better than fresh seed.

Falls City, OR USA

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F  -9.4C.  Rainfall 50"+  but none  June-+September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight.  soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.  Oregon- where Dallas is NNW of Phoenix.

Middle of May started last batch of Patens seeds that I had left over.

Light is now at 20 inches above and at 18-20% power. This time I added perlite to sand/compost mix and on top. Had issues with green junk growing last time.
