    These little "tea bags" have done very well, the seedlings really seem to like them. However, I was just checking something -- namely, why do seedlings labeled A. sinense have a terminal bud? -- and found them to be very wet. I'm not sure how long into the season they can be left outside. What do you say, D?

    I also wanted to ask @AlainK how all those baby dissectums are doing.

    Hi Emery,

    Most of them are doing fine.
    I'll post photos tomorrow, but I took a few pics this morning, that includes one with various seedlings of the year, from other French enthusiasts.

    All the "1" didn't germinate;
    "6" is the only 'Mon Papa', looks rather weak;
    "5" is buergerianum. Always a very good rate of germination, wherever the seeds come from;
    "4" is from 'Okushimo';
    "3" is, er - I don't remember and anyway it's dark and cold now (though it was 19° this afternoon!);
    "2" is "Atropurpureum dissectum". As usual, very, very different seedlings. The ones I prefer ;°)
    "1" = 0, read above... ^_^

    I decided to bring the seedling in grow bags into the greenhouse because our night temps are dropping below freezing. I hope the over winter well. I had a thought of leaving them out and covering them with fine chopped leaves but rather try the greenhouse first.

    A. sinense, is terminal bud unusual? Hybrid possibly?

    Very nice-looking gang of young maples, LOM... ;-)

    Why not try half and half if you have enough ?...

    Thanks Alain. I have enough but these are the ones I wanna grow on. About 30 are japonicums. I might try a few. I have way more than one person will ever need. I'm sure they would be find insulated in the fine chopped leaves.
