Symphony Sprout's Shirley Poppies.....Survival of the Fittest?!
March 24 - As several others have noted, I saw a decline in my Shirley Poppies in the second week. They looked to be wilting away ~ but I now seem to have some survival of the fittest happening. Some dying off while others are growing taller and starting new growth of second set of tiny leaves!
I am keeping 12-14 hours of flourescent light on them and have bottom watered twice. Spritzing occasionally when top of soil looks dry.
Here is a side view to see how little they have grown in height since the first week!
I wish I had more varieties to follow...maybe I will be inspired to plant more!
Hey fellow gardeners!
