Sarracenia Seedlings

Recommended Posts

I have 15 Sarracenia seedlings that are about 4 weeks old. When would be best to thin these out into there own pots, or should I leave them until they are much older?

You should use a spoon to dig up the seedlings, but it's a risky task. If i were you i'd wait until they are little bit older.

Thanks, that's what I thought but always best to check.

I'd wait at least a year personally. Seems a bit daft to pot them together and then pot them separately soon after. You might as well have just sown them in their own pots in the first place!

Been fairly new to the hobby, I just did what I thought everybody else was doing. I don't suppose they will grow much more this year unless I can keep them warm and give them plenty of light. They are currently in my greenhouse, but this is only frost protected during the winter.
