Baby Crownflower Trees

The crownflower seeds I planted at the beginning of August have sprouted. I had left them in the seed-starting tray for a while, but I finally transferred some of them to larger pots.

It feels like they’re growing slowly, but I guess they really aren’t. I only planted them six weeks ago.

I’ll let them get big before I plant them in the ground at school. I probably could plant them already by November. Winter is the rainy season here, and the wet weather would help the plants become established. Then my only concern would the be tall grass that is growing where I want to plant them. Somehow I’d have to keep that in check. Maybe some landscaping fabric…

The picture is blurry because I didn't take the picture until dusk.

    Isn’t it amazing how those tiny little plants will become actual trees? Sprouts are the weakling kittens of the plant world.

    Grow, little guys!
