They grow rather quicker than cactus seedlings, don't they!

They look amazing. My seeds from the last Haw Society list are just starting to pop through now. I've got them in my Vitapod propogator in the greenhouse. The pots are also in zip lock bags. Any advice please ad to what I need to do next as I know in many ways the easy thing is germinating them and the hard part keeping them going! I have bought a set up of T5 grow lights which I haven't yet tried out so maybe they might be useful now?

Ah yes - thanks - I recognise these now as the similar to my daughter's aquarium. I take it you have them fitted in standard tube fittings supported over the growing plants.

Hi actually it's a complete kit I bought with reflectors and supports etc. Just haven't got round to setting it up yet! Am trying to decide if it will be best placed in the greenhouse suspended over the Vitapod containing the newly emerging seedlings?
