Re: rain dance is working TOO well.


Looks like it may rain here too, but I'm quite sure we won't get 9 inches.
This morning I potted up those nasturtiums, sunflowers, and 4:00s that I
started in an APS unit. I kept them inside because if it does rain hard, I
think it could damage them, they are just tiny.  I realize these are not the
kinds of seed to start in a 40 cell APS unit; should have been done in situ
or in peat pots.  The roots went straight down into the capillary matting
and I had to keep lifting the cells to prevent them from getting too much of
a hold.  Still broke some roots anyway which is why I wanted to get them
potted up so soon.  I potted them in 4 inch pots, set them in water trays to
soak up from the bottom, and misted the tops.  The whole thing seems a bit
futile, doing it all wrong, but if a few survive, I'll be happy.  I used the
APS unit because I had used it to start some Amsonia seeds but none ever
germinated.  Rather than dump the unit, I just reused it for these tough
seeds, and every one germinated.
