Leontochir ovallei

Leontochir ovallei

This morning I did my usual rounds of the seedlings to see what has germinated. And I didn't forget the cold room where my Leontochir is this time!

I was greeted with the most bizarre sight. The Leontochir seedling from yesterday has managed to 'fix' itself. At first I thought it was laying against the side of the plastic bag but it isn't. I am completely flabbergasted. Seedlings don't 'repair' themselves!

I know I should have removed the broken seedling before I re-sealed the bag but I didn't have the heart to. And now I'm glad I didn't.

But I'm not sure what to do. It mustn't stay in the plastic bag. No good can come of that. Maybe if I remove the bag and use some tiny stick or splint to prop my seedling up or just take the main weight of it. Any suggestions?

Rachel,if it is cold room,then why you need bag?

Could you use a cocktail stick to support it?

I think Rachel,have to put in phone remainder, and go and check that tray every day,and take off that bag.

I removed the bag and put the label along side the seedling so it could lean on it. I may have stabbed emerging seedlings but "a bird in the hand..."
