dear Linda: I am no model to follow. I just pot up seedlings that are
sending up a late fall stalk, pot them, disturbing as little as possible,
then put them under fluorescent lights in the "playhouse". I keep the
temperature cool, about 60 F. Water sparingly. This year, I only potted
the one planbt, but it has been worth looking at, a plicata in
brownish-purple (is that puce?) and white. Two years ago I had about
thirty. Lloyd Zurbrigg in Durham NC
