Seedlings without roots

Postby MALACHIT » Wed Jun 24, 2015 8:47 am

Hallo,

I have some last year seedlings, which didn't grow, did not pop up their old leaves and lost their roots.
I want to save them, because they are 'Sato´s Violet', 'Café au Lait' and 'Zorro'.

Does anyone have an advice?
Do I have a chance to keep them alive?

Viele herzliche Grüße aus Berlin

Jürgen

They all look healthy and plump, so I see no reason why they will not re-root. I would pot them up in your usual potting mix and put them in a shaded position. Keep them damp but not wet and if you can give them a bit of bottom heat, it should encourage the roots to come out quicker.
Good luck with them and please keep us posted on how they go on.

If you are in a cold climate, fresh sphagnum moss will assist in rapid re-rooting.
