Seeds started in small pots.
Tallest are about 3 1/2", ready to transplant (foreground in one
photo). Others are about 2 1/2" tall. Same age, different crosses.
Foliage of some just grows faster.
When a lot of seeds germinate from a cross, they are transplanted to
window box type planters or large pots. When only a few come up, they
go in individual pots. The top inch or so of foliage trimmed off before
They will be lined out in the garden when they are bigger, starting to
form a small rhizome or at least thicker roots. A few of the earliest
germinants from burrito'ing (not shown) are already big enough. These
photos are of seeds planted outdoors, brought inside as soon as they
began to germinate.
