Aspen seedling - should I give up?
I recently returned from Colorado with a 1 1/2 ft Aspen seedling that was dug up from my fiancees mountain cabin. I put it in a Dixie cup but it immediately began to wilt. I'm watering it regularly but it doesn't look good, completely dried up.
I know Aspens reproduce by suckers and that in digging it up I severed it's connection to its mother plants, but I've heard that seedlings will eventually overcome this transplant shock with regular watering.
Does anyone have any advice? I also brought back some blue spruce seedlings that are doing great so far in their small containers.
Thanks for any help!
