26 januari jl. 10 zaden besteld
Na aanschuren en weken dit maal niet in zaai- en stekgrond gezaaid (vorige keer zonder succes, naar verloop van tijd weggerot) dit maal in plastic zakje met vochtig spaghnum mos gestopt.
Begin deze week (controleer wekelijks alle kweekbakken en -zakken) zag ik opeens in zak 3 mini musa Cheesmanii's met goed ontwikkeld wortelstelsel
Deze inmiddels uit zak gehaald en in eigen pot gezet met verse zaai- en stekgrond

Al met al, musa zaden zal ik voortaan nu enkel middels deze methode trachten te laten kiemen.
De kans op wegrotten is veel kleiner
