Quote from: Uli on June 11, 2023, 04:03:17 AMI agree with the others. There is no general treatment for winter growing seedlings during their first summer. What I do is to group the pots together which need the same treatment. All in shade. Those pots where the seedlings go completely dormant are moved to the dormant group and those which remain at least partly green are kept moist. However, even the fully dormant pots get a small amount of water every four weeks or so. Small bulbs my dry up to death if kept brutally dry for many months, especially in a hot climate. It has also happened to me that seedling bulbs have rotted with too much water during dormancy but this is the exception. I have lost more to drought. All this is a matter of constant learning and close observation.Uli Great information, thank you all, I have been doing exactly this, those that seem to be constantly green get some water and light fertilizer when they seem dry and those having gone dormant are in my dry area propagation box. I will add some water to them occasionally with this tip, thanks
