As you can see, I have two seedlings in each "container." I don't want their growth to be stunted because they are so close to each other. I know that normally, you would thin them out at this point. Instead of thinning, I would like to have 4 separate plants in their own individual container. I live in an apartment building with lots of direct sunlight, so I will keep these plants indoors. I have a few questions.
- Is it time to transplant these seedlings into their own containers yet?
- Is the pot in the picture the appropriate size?
- How deep should I bury the main stems in the new pot? I don't think the pot is deep enough to bury the main stem all the way up to the cotyledons without it having to sit on the bottom of the pot.
- Should I add fertilizer (Miracle-Gro 24-8-16) after transplanting? (I am using Miracle-Gro potting mix, which claims to already have fertilizer in it.)
