|Tomato seedlings with condensation inside the plastic domes.|
|Borage. It's a good companion plant for tomatoes and has edible flowers.|
|A variety of very young pepper seedlings.|
I also started a TON of cuttings thanks to much assistance and information from Sybil and Rob. I am attempting to root approximately 100 fig cuttings of the following varieties: Celeste, Blue Celeste, Hardy Chicago, Alma, Italian Golden Honey/Lattarula, Osborne Prolific, Magnolia/Brunswick, Strawberry Verte, Violet de Bordeaux, and Panache/Tiger. I am rooting the cuttings in plastic cups (with drainage holes) filled with perlite and a pinch of potting soil. Sybil recommended a mix of 50:50 perlite:vermiculite, but I was in a pinch for time and money and opted to use what I already had in my shed. Aside from some moisture management, there isn't much for me to do until they start to root in a bunch of weeks.
|Assorted fig cuttings in cups of perlite. I placed them in trays to make it easier to move them outside for watering.|
|If you look closely you can see some green growth emerging from the tips of the cuttings. I'm less concerned with top growth and more concerned with root growth at this stage.|
|Loquat cuttings with the leaves trimmed to reduce transpiration.|
|Che cuttings from a beautiful shrub/tree that looked similar in structure to a Japanese Maple.|
