I just thought I would share some shots of my progression with my Sarrs. The Chocolate Top were started in August, 2023. The rosea's and Okee Giants, etc. were started around October. The smaller ones are from Jan and Feb of this year. The one proud one sticking way up there is the only survivor from ChefDean S. (leuco x oreo) x (oreo x leuco). Some of these plants are taking off like weeds. I am thinking most will be ready for the greenhouse come August or September of this year. I am considering pulling some of the larger ones so I can get them ID'd and growing on their own. Hope its not too many pics.

Can't see the images...too many, too big. That "program" to get high-speed Internet to the rural areas...somebody made a killing on that. But, I'm sure they're looking good, though.

Thanks for the compliments. Glad you were able to load 5. There are actually 17. So the qty. you were seeing was about 1/3 or less.

This brings me to a question. I will have a greenhouse in place some time in August. Nothing fancy, just one I picked up really cheap on eBay. I am thinking of moving most of these into the greenhouse around end of Aug or so depending on whether or not we experience above average temps to acclimate them and get them ready for dormancy. Is this the right way to go about it since the plants are under lights for 22 hours per day? Should I adjust the time a little each day that lights go out? I want to try and catch the perfect time to move them. The larger, nicer looking ones will definitely be getting separated here soon.

You should be fine taking them out to the greenhouse in August, but drop the lights by a few hours beforehand, natural light is very different from artificial lights and under glass, polythene or polycarbonate, it is different again, but if the plants are to have a 'natural' dormancy, they get their cues largely from the photoperiod, which they will have time to adjust to in August to November.
Is it your intention to leave them outside in the greenhouse from then on?
Cheers
