Finally! One of the Kangaroo Paw seedlings has emerged and I am entertaining visions of the fabulous house plant to come. My own little Australian garden here in New England.
Hopefully, some of the others will emerge as well, but I have my doubts. The packet directions said to put the trays in a couple of inches of water and keep them covered with plastic wrap. That is how I started, but within days I saw mold forming on top of the soil so I uncovered the trays and have been misting the soil regularly. I rather suspect that this one seedling might just be of the heartiest strain to have survived thus far. A heating pad might have been a good idea back at the start, but I doubt it will do much good now. Then again – maybe worth a try!
