Lycoris sprengeri baby bulbs from seed

Dear Friends,
	Glad to hear my Lycoris seeds are growing well. The fertile 
species are generally easy to grow, but slow to mature. When I want 
maximum germination, I grow them in pots planted about 1/2 in deep. I 
usually transplant them in their first season of growth to give them 
ample room. They do not 'like' root restrictions.

	The pictures look like nice young seedlings.

	Seedlings are best transplanted when you can still find the 
foliage  although adult bulbs are best moved when they are dormant 

	Good luck to all growing these. 		Jim W.
