Replied in flickr a while ago then i needed to work.
I ventilate them like that. I even blow air in the bag and see that the drop a degree.
I'll monitor that browning, maybe ulmy is right about it being a mystery.
The other plants are fine and they are in the same environment.

Thanks again nothim. you're like captain planet.

Now I'm just a novice at this, friend DanG, but I think the browning tips, as opposed to brown spots midleaf, can be accounted for by your 31C temp and windy conditions: probably a bit stressful for your young plants to cope, transpiration-wise, but given time and care they'll adapt to the environment. If you're misting them occasionally along with conservative watering that will help. Sometimes a bit of sunburn precedes a nice tan. My Sylvia, as a young cutting, survived last summer, outside, with heat up to 108F and several daily hours of direct sunlight with liberal daily spritzing. Just watch for wilting as a sign that immediate watering is crucial.

They are in a mushroom bag so it's always humid. Even if the bag isn't sealed the RH here averages to 70% all year!
I'm now speculating that there's just too much compost at the bottom of the pot. Anyway other than that browning, the other plants are fine :)

Day 9 is up!:

at least make sure boolie stays alive! soon you will have so many replicas(clones) that you will wonder how to name the forest.

The family of boolie's will make it out alive!!! If they didn't then it's just not meant to be.
Still my friend from Brazil was able to grow them with similar climates! Just not like Seamac Salvia Trees haha

Weird i just remembered something from a dream a few days ago. The dream suggests that i really should plant them in forests.
I'll grow them and make them hardy first! Once they build muscles then i'll plant them in nature :D


--EDIT--

DAY 10 is up!:

I think i've lost a leaf Nothim! Must got picked off by a bird when i wasn't looking.
I remember birds ambushing my basil seedlings... my goji seedlings, my coleus seedlings, my pepper seedlings, my lone carob seedling and many many more...
Sigh... :lol:
I think i need to feed them bird seed so they'll stay away from my plants.

She's so beautiful! Like a little baby, except one that's probably hundreds of years old.
