Hi, can someone please tell me when to prick out my antirrhynums? They are so tiny, germinated about two weeks ago and still have just two leaves. Β Do I wait for the next set of leaves? Β Thanks.

    Hi @kaywaiteceramics,
    Yes, you must wait for the true leaves (the 2nd set of leaves that emerge after the seed leaves) to emerge before you prick out.

    Just be patient a little longer as pbff says, they are tiny seeds and plants at first but well worth the effort. When they have 5 sets of true leaves just nip off the top 2 sets and you will get a bushier plant.Β 
    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.
