...that's a lot of seedlings. Shocked

I notice you sow different species in the same container. Just out of curiousity, how do you keep track of what's sown where?

the lights are low-watt fluoros, at 15~23 cm... I know I let them more than I should there, in low light I mean, and I also had some blackout on one shelf that I didn't see in time. Thus, resulting in some etiolation.

WOW WOW, that's not from my last sowing 28 dec of 09, it's from MAY 09 sowing, they're 6 month old, and certainly not one month old!

Yep they are many indeed. This is my first attempt at a closed, sealed sowing, the photos were taken recently when I first opened it. Now I am trying to slowly acclimatize to drier conditions and I will plant in normal pots soon after spring comes... Of course, I will graft some Smile

But I might have been stupid to put again different species and genuses together with last sowing [28 den 09] as with the slow growing strombocactus/aztekium and much faster astrophytums.... shouldn't have done that... we will see... but I will be asking your experiences with seedling handling etc etc...

OH! How I remember them. At the very moment of sowing, I draw the outline of the area which each species was sowed in the transparent cap of the box and write the genus/species/strain, thus making a map of the sowing. Even if some seeds fall a bit further, in another 'country', you be able to understand in time, as the map always shows they way you sowed them... and from comparing with the other seedlings

PS: I have to say that the A.myriostigma you can see is seed produced from a cross from my two myriostigmas, which is interesting as they are quite different strains... Thus I regard this seed the most interesting genetically as I know both parents...
