Hey AndreaC. I have 40 and 63 from Aldebardan, planted today in plastic food type containers in similar compost and put into cold greenhouse. Will be interesting to compare growth? Are yours in heated area?

Hi Keith, I'm glad you've seeded them.
My seeds are placed in plastic jars, substrate formed by peat, perlite and a pinch of vermiculite. Below 5 neon ( 2x 865, 2x 840, 1x 827 ) switched on for 16 hours a day. Terrarium temperature: day 25 ° centigrade, night 20/21 ° centigrade.
Good cultivation!

Hi Andrea, 

 

have some going too so thanks for posting, as Keith says be good to compare and see some others experiences. Have you had them in the fridge before? Do you plan to go for feeding and skipping their first winter?

 

I have gone old school too Keith and they are cold and wet outside, will be a while before we see them, I think maybe we will see Andreas seedlings first and I must just think that it is good that they will take some time as I do need to find a permanent home for them to live in!

Happy growing both

Hi Andrea,

I sowed seeds last winter indoor under LED lamp and also this winter.
Here is the list:

S. x “Black Knight” x S. x “Black Widow” SX113 (Aldebardan CPUK 22/11)      
S. leucophylla var. alba Very white tops, with some green veines SL8 x S. leucophylla ‘Hurricane Creek White’ Clone 1A (Aldebardan CPUK 22/11)     
S. leucophylla ‘Hurricane Creek White’ Clone 5A x “Wilkerson’s Red” OP - SX101 (Aldebardan CPUK 22/11)

Winter 2017/2018

S. Leucophylla Hurricane Creek White clone 1A (Aldebardan) (28/10)

S. Leucophylla Hurricane Creek White clone 1A X clone E (Aldebardan) (28/10)
S. Leucophylla Hurricane Creek White clone 5A X clone E (Aldebardan) (28/10)

I see the hybrids grow much faster than the crossings between S.leucophylla.

My seeds are sprouting these days! :yes:

I cannot draw this conclusion because on the same sowing, there are big differences of growth.
