Kim, I think the clear lid may be keeping them too moist. I would try it a day or so without it, and see what happens. They need light and warmth to grow, I would keep them in the heatet tray if the room temperature drops under 72 degree F.
I would also look for a babysitter for them during spring break, would be nice if someone had a greenhouse to keep them in.

Hugh,

I am going to take the seedlings home for the break. I'll keep the lid off for a few days and see how things go.

I have a friend coming in to feed the cat for the few days we'll be gone, so I'll have her look after them. Or, maybe my student teacher will take them home.

Thanks!

This is only the sixth day since I planted the 2nd flat of Paulonia. This morning I woke up to 37 sprouts! But there is one other growth in 2 of the cells. Some sort of white colored mold or fungus.

Does any body have an idea of what I could use in my spritz bottle as a fungacide?

Jeff,

I don't know what sort of fungicide to use, but I would be interested in the answer.

Are you planning to keep the cover on your seed tray? I have been taking mine off during the day, but covering up at night. I still have it plugged in, but it seems awfully warm. I'm going to go unplug it right now.

I spritz it a couple times a day, and rotate the flat to try to keep the trees growing upright.

Does anyone have any idea whether rotating the flat is useful or not? I can't imagine that "real tree growers" do it.

Good luck!

Does any body Know the name of the guy you see on pbs. Jerry something or other. He always has home gardening remedies made out of household items. I am thinking he is galled the greengardener. maybe I will try looking for that.

I took my top off as soon as I saw the fungus. What I did not say is that I planted two of the segments with Tomato seeds. That warming tray sure fired them off. I had sprouts in 3 days and had to remove the plants this morning because they were hitting the top already! I have them in our kitchen window that faces south.

My Dad always started his seeds in doors, and always rotated his plants, just as my mom still does with her nouse plants.

It seems the fungas may be whats called Damping odd Disease. I found this link about starting seeds indoors. It covers information about light, moisture, and our question on when to remove the cover on the plants.

http://www.gardenweb.com/sesbania/startsds.html

I also came across 2 references to mold treatments, but neither had any specifics. One mentioned lysol, the other was sulpher dust. The sulpher dust reminded me that my dad use to break the heads off matches and scatter in his starting bed. I bet now that was why. Off to find some kitchen matches!

Rotating the flats will help make seedlings grow straighter.  They will always grow towards the light.  If you are using a direct, overhead light, then rotation wouldn't be as necessary.
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

 I consulted the green thumb here. Horsetail tea is the organic fungicide, Banrot the listed chemical for damp off. Did you sterilize everything between batches? Have you ever seen capillary mat that sits in a water tray then your styro block tray sits on that, moist root, dry top.

I think the guy on PBS you are referring to is Jerry Baker the master gardener. If I recall correctly he has a website www.jerrybaker.com.

Good luck

I am taking my flat of seedlings back to school today. (I wish I were still in bed! ???)

About a week ago, I had another round of seeds sprout - must've been ones that didn't get started with the rest of them, as I didn't sow more.

So, I have about half the flat with some 2 inch tall "babies" and about a quarter with itsy-bitsy newborns, and the rest of the cells have nothing.

At what point do I do more than keep them watered? Should I thin out the cells yet? Transplant? Sell the logging rights to my "forest"?
:D :D :D :D

Kim, how wide are your leaves? You can transplant some of the plants that are more than one tree to the cell to the empty cells. I would try this on a couple first and give them a day or so, then do the rest if the others do allright. If your leaves are a half inch or more across they can use more direct sunlight and some liquid fertilizer.
Post or send us some pictures, need to see some pictures of my "babies".
I'll have bloom pictures in the next few days, blooms are about three-quarters open now.  :D
