Please can anyone advise the best size/time to prick out D. capensis seedlings. I inevitably sowed the seeds too thickly due to their minute size and would welcome some advice.

Many thanks

Just thought I would share this : now done and all looking well albeit a bit lost sitting on their own ! Looking forward to them colouring up when we get some sunshine !!

Well, fancy that!  All my D. capensis have elongate leaves, nothing like the ones in the photo which look like little table tennis bats.  Is it just because they are so young, Stephen?

Hi Guy,

Thank you, yes Stephen is correct, they are definitely D. capensis from seed which I collected from my mother plant. After initially having round leaves they now have the more typical elongated leaf with each one getting longer as the plants grow...

Best Regards,

Marko

Interesting!  I have capensis seedlings growing all over the place and, I must admit, I've never studied them that closely.  They are just weeded out when they get big.  I'll keep a closer eye on them now!
