    These have just arrived from Hayloft. Sale bargain - and some free Aliums in the box too.
    They look good healthy plants that will have to stay in the mini green house until Spring.
    Should I cut them back now? If so, how far down please,
    thanks,
    Jennu namaste

          I thought they looked something like C cirrhosa ... not far out :smile:
          I don't think you need to cut them back yet, I'd do it in the spring when they can grow new shoots.
          Maybe someone will have a different answer.

            The Bright Salmon Brugmansia rooting I ordered on 29 December arrived from Spaiin today (it was posted Monday the 3rd to avoid the holiday). I have it in water on the kitchen sill.

            To the right are the Solanum muricatum (Pepino Doce, Melon Pear, Sweet Cucumber) from Italy cuttings, slowly, slowly rooting ...

                  Good grief, that looks very professional. Expect the drug squad calling shortly. :yikes:

                  But yes, lights do make a difference. I have some cheapy ones that allow me to stretch the seedling period a bit, and liberates room from the best windowsills. I have something like this that don't look too obtrusive in the living room or kitchen https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B09M3KYKVM/ref=twister_B09Q2QQYH3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

                  Easy to clamp on the curtain rod or on the side of a shelf.

                    It actually looks bigger in the picture than it is @Selleri .

                    I cant see why these dont come with connections at both ends then, given a few cables, you could make them up in banks of any size you would want to.
