If you want them to grow a little bit faster, don't forget to feed them! Sprinkle a little crushed fish food onto them,say once every 2 months..

I can confirm that feeding young plants is really effective. I tried with three D. aliciae leaf-cutting (they are not seedling, yes, but they started growing at the same time). One of them was a the diet, one was feeding once two weeks or three, and one once a week. As I imagined, they are now from the smallest to the tallest ^^

Heres an update on my little seedlings, i tried the fish food approach, it caused a little bit of mold which i have now got rid of =D and they're looking as good as ever despite losing a couple, think i will just let them grow for a bit before i feed them, i have moved them into my heated propagator though so hopefully that will bring them on a little faster now =D

This photo was taken at the end of Jan =P still growing pretty slow but hopefully being in my propagator will speed them up =D

Also does anyone have any advice on when i should start splitting these up??

Enjoy
