Loofah Diaries – Part 3

It’s been a while since I posted about my little seedlings – sadly – they are very slow growing!

Back in late April, I posted Part 1 and Part 2… Well, in mid-June, I finally had big enough seedlings to warrant transplanting!


It seriously took nearly two months for these to grow from seeds to the very first leaves.  Good thing I’m not in a rush to use these!  They did best in full sunlight, as long as it wasn’t too cold.  Kept them pretty much soaking wet as much as possible, which they seemed to like.

The joy of the little soil pucks is that it is very easy to transplant them.  You can technically pop these in, webbing and all, into a larger soil container, but, as I did, you can easily peel away the webbing and transplant just the seedling.

About a week after transplanting, this is what I got:

Cotyledon fully developed, first true leaves starting!

Yup – this has really got to be the slowest growing plant ever!  Stay tuned!
