FMN Question

Posted by judiohz5 (My Page) on

I am having a problem with Myosotis. They germinate ok and when they have 2 or 3 leaves I pot them up in small plastic cups like all the other plants. Then they turn kinda yellow and seem to dry up. They are in the basement under lights like the other 15 flats. This is my first year growing from seed and everything else is doing fine. Is it something I'm doing wrong or are these just hard to get going?

Thanks for any advice you can give me.

They really don't like being transplanted, so that would be my guess.

I bet they are just 'mad' and will bounce back soon.

Remember extra water does not help that will just welcome mold and dampening disease.


RE: FMN Question

keriann, thanks for the info. I didn't know they are so touchy about transplanting. I'll try sowing some in situ.
