germinated Vinca, care

Posted by archoo16 5 (My Page) on

I started a bunch of flowering seeds and veggies in 72 jiffy green house set up. Its been a week and 26 plants of 36 have germinated and are out of the humidity dome.

My 2 vinca seeds in peat pellets were put in a separate container with plastic dome. One has germinated. Now do I just bring it out to warmth and light? I did that with a vinca seedling , weedy looking one with yellow tiny top that I had seeded in some potting mix separately and it promptly flopped over and died. :'( So kindly advice on what to do with my other weedy looking vinca that just germinated .

RE: germinated Vinca, care

It isn't 'weedy' it's just a baby. But it is yellow because it is sitting in the gloom at the bottom of a deep container and it needs light. It needs to be in a container no deeper than the pellet and later transplanted pellet and all (cut through the netting) into a larger pot.

RE: germinated Vinca, care

Thank you. I had it germinate in darkness and didn't know If was ready to be brought out.

Am still having it inside the humidity dome because the air here is very dry and cool. But there's plenty of light. Once it grows a little more or gets pigment in the leaves , i'll put it out.
