Hello Ange,

Out of 48 "slots", I had 44 germinate on the first try this year (started Dec 26, 2007). Last year I couldn't get Purple Haze to germinate, even after 4 trys - - this year, BAM!! 3 of 3 seedlings are doing well. My trouble this year is trying to get Goose Creek to "take wing", so to speak. Only 1 of 3 has germinated.

I had to move my seedlings out to a self-watering Earthbox on Feb 11, as I was going on a business trip for a full week, and they would have died from lack of water inside the house. They seem to be loving it outside right now. (See photo taken Feb 4, then one taken today Feb 24). Big difference!! I plan on separating them into pairs, then moving them into their own Earthboxes over the next 2 weeks.
