Yeah, my enthusiasm seeing them germinate was definitely tempered by realizing what time of year it was. I knew the challenging part would be to get even one through the winter.

I have been keeping them very warm, and letting them dry out between waterings (although not completely dry). The heat mat underneath them, combined with the grow light right over them keeps them pretty warm. Still, it isn't ideal conditions obviously...but I'm doing what I can.
