What Do I Put My Acanthus Seedlings Now?
Three weeks ago I sowed some acanthus hungaricus seeds in seed trays.
You are meant to keep them for 3-4 weeks at 20°, then put them outdoors for 6-8 weeks (at about –5° to 5°), then they are meant to germinate as spring gets going. At least that is what I understand.
But: My seeds have already germinated (like a Christmas miracle I suppose).
My question is: What should I do with them now?
- If I keep them indoors at 20° they will probably grow too quickly and keel over
- Will they withstand the winter if I put them outside now?
I would appreciate any help. Thank you!
All the best
