RE: First Mistake with sporeling

Hi Doret


When you remove the sporelings, do it in a cooler high humidity well
protected area with low sun strength.


By removing them from their highly protected situation for a short time, may
have over-stressed them greatly.


Really comes under the same heading as 'hardening them off', but not
generally mentioned.


They may come good hopefully.

Subject: [ferns] First Mistake with sporeling


Hi Everyone,


I have run into my first trouble with my sporeling.  I transplanted 5

sporeling in exactly the same mix as they were sown and I planted them in

underside of a plastic cooldrink bottle that I cut in half and the otherhalf

pushed over again and it made a small hothouse.


BUT all five of the sporeling just turned brown.  What did I do wrong?  I

so excited but now I know I still have a lot to learn.
