Here are the seedlings today. Certainly are COLD hardy at this stage. Some Heliconias I was trying outside (growing near this seedlings) where totally defoliated.

Alberto, I see elsewhere where you said you added copper sulfate... did you add while potting up or did you top dress with that?

Also, are all those from seed?


Thanks,

Bill

I made a solution like you use for spraying plants with copper and I drenched the soil after planted.
This are from seeds from RPS.
