TOPIC: separating seedlings

separating seedlings 3 months 3 weeks ago #37345

Hello all. So my question is wether or not i should dig up and separate these seedlings. They are pinus aristata and are about 3 weeks old. I don't want the roots to strangle each other. Will that happen or are they ok for a while.

Roots dont strangle eachother. They will be fine. Focus on keeping them alive for now.

For all except the formal upright, you do NOT want the tree to be straight..

Make sure they get loads of sunlight. Do not keep them too wet. And yeah, as soon as possible, move them outside. UNless you are in summer now, these things should still be in their seeds.

They need full sun or they will get tall and spindly. With them being actively growing in winter, you are going to get spindly trings as it is anyway I am afraid.

Ok. They are now in full sun. For the record, how do we fell about sun lamps in general for tree growing. Google has mixed info on it and my books don't cover it.

You don't need them.
