Aloe Seedling Graduation

 Almost done mulching.  I'm also moving a few plants around.   It's time to put one of last year's Aloe seedlings onto the slope, before hot summer weather arrives.

Mama Capitata, with winter-red leaves, is nearby:

Eleven months ago, it was one of these:

 Time will tell how many years it takes to bloom.  
Update:  the rest of the seedlings, still in the nursery bed.  Compare the size of the 'Blue Glow' Agave seedlings above them, which have finally grown a little bit, but remain tiny:

    1. I am hoping they are pure capitata and not hybrids, but it will be years before we know.

  3. You're only planting one of the seedlings?! Saving the rest, or did not too many make it this far?

    1. Didn't lose any seedlings--still pondering where to put the others, what would have to be moved, etc. A whole group of capitatas would be very cool, or better scattered over the slope, to add unity?

  4. At this rate, your Blue Glow seedlings won't be ready for planting out for years to come, LOL.

  5. Cool! You are the first person I've met who can grow agaves from seed!

    1. If I could do it, then it isn't difficult!
