Please remind us which is the diameter of your pots. Thanks.

I buy standard pots 5.5 cm in diameter at the top and 4.2 cm in height. Then I make these pots oval-shaped, then they have front and back. I think that the oval shaped pots are better than the round ones. Even the rectangular 5 cm pots are very good, but they do not fit in my mini greenhouse.

Thank you Brom. Looking at that first post I calculate them to be in the order of 6-7 weeks depending on the time it took to germinate.

Your plants grow faster than mine for sure. Do you grow them under lights?? And if so, how many hours of light do they get per day?

I grow mine outside. They are healthy for sure but I think yours may get more hours of light than mine.

Hi pvdw,
outside is better because the seedlings love fresh air. But it does not work that easy for me because it's too cold outside. Nevertheless, they also get fresh air with me.
As I wrote in the beginning, the germination lasted about a week, according to my records the last seedling germinated on the 25th of September, that is 9 days after sowing.
The seedlings are standing on the windowsill, on the northwest side. So they get daylight from the window and additional artificial light from LED lamps from 6:00 in the morning until 20:30 in the evening.
The size of the seedlings is different in each species. Some species have very small seedlings and these remain very long small and grow well only after they have developed the first real leaves.
So only the seedlings of the same species can be compared!
Viele Grüße aus Marienthal
