Default Re: Birth of a New Hybrid Musa: Musa sp. aff. aurantiaca (Trebrown seeds) x velutina

Just a little update today. I've potted most of the seedlings up. One of them died soon thereafter, and 2 are looking kind of rough, but the rest (5) look pretty good. I've been exposing them to natural sunlight as much as I can, but taking them indoors at night (since we've been having lows in the low 40s recently). It's been really nice and warm here the past few days, so they are getting some good heat and light to hopefully beef them up a little before I have to take them inside for the rest of the winter. They are still pretty puny, and I really wish I had a greenhouse right about now. I have my doubts as to whether or not I can get one or two to pull through for the next several months indoors, but will do my best! I still have 2 more in the box to pot up when they get a bit larger.
