rose seedlings

Not all the seeds of La Belle Sultane have germinated yet, but the little rose babies are growing rapidly and are doing fine under the growlight. Also I was very happy to see that two seeds of the moss rose Général Kleber have germinated last week; hopefully some more will follow soon.

Already a few seeds of La Belle Sultane have sprouted and the first true leaves are starting to unfold. For me this is truly a miracle to see.

A few seeds of La Belle Sultane were left in the plastic bag and today I saw that some of these seeds also have begun to sprout. The seeds of Général Kleber are still dormant, but I’ve decided that they probably have been long enough in the refrigerator and I have put these seeds in pellets and placed them under the growlight. I’m very anxious to see if the seeds of this moss rose will germinate and maybe grow into a new moss rose.
