Brugmansia Transplant (58 Days)

It's been 58 days since I sowed my Brugmansia.  Three of the five seeds sprouted and two have done very well.  The other was overshadowed and is still tiny.  It's now in a pot of it's own and will hopefully catch up.  I used a mixture of Miracle Grow potting mix and some left over cactus mix from my massive Adenium arabicum transplant (tomorrow's post).

Does anyone know what size I can expect them to start flowering?  I was also wondering about minimum temperatures to prevent leaf damage.  I think dormancy starts around 7C (45F).  I'll probably just have to put them outside during the day and bring them in at night for the next little while.  They'll stay in today though because I don't want to stress them too much and there is a wind warning.  Apparently my foot got in a picture.  Yes, I do have a stubby big toe.

I love growing things from seed.  It's just so satisfying!  On a less exciting note, I haven't heard back yet about the job I'm super excited for.  I'll just have to wait and see what happens.  I'll probably do a few more apps today though.  Happy Easter to anyone that celebrates!


  1. I, too am having more of an appreciation for seeds in my old age!!! help here on Brugs! The flowers will be amazing when they do come...I know that much!!! (I'm such a big help, eh???) Heeeee hee hee! :)

  2. I'm excited for them. I left them outside yesterday, last night, and today. It's suppose to rain all tomorrow and then get cold so I'll bring them in tonight. No wilting or anything though1
