    Do believe the Brazilian Walking iris seedlings will need potting very, very soon. They seem to have grown as much as they can in their seedling tray. Now, I will have to figure out how to safely get them out of it. :think:

    Today, I finally potted the Brazilian Walking iris seedlings & the two, newly discovered, plantlets. I was very surprised to see just how few roots the seedlings had. Did think the seed tray containers would have been full of roots. Hope these little things will survive. There are four seedlings in each pot.

    The Brazilian Walking iris - neomarica bicolour gracilis - seedlings have really grown since they have been placed into pots. There are 10 of them now.

    The newly repotted Brazilian Walking iris - neomarica bicolour seedlings seedlings. Hopefully they will have more room, in this pot, for their roots to develop & enable them to grow to their full size. Their root system is rather small.

    If we get another seedpod I shall plant the seeds straight into the pot they will stay in. Don't really think they like being transplanted as seedlings. Their roots get knocked around too much.
