I did pot the biggest one in a small pot. the rest I finally had to take out of the greenhouse. They all fell over, so I had to put a glass over each one! (there went all my drinking glasses! I guess they now belong to my plants.) They stood right back up when I did that. They have thick, strong stems.
The Impateins are so thickly sprouted I am going to have to separate small amounts, somehow, so they don't choke each other out.
My columbine hasn't sprouted yet, but the packages said about a month, so I'm not fretting yet.

Oh, and today I bought two new plants! A bromeliad called Carly; beautiful flower in it's center; and a Shamrock Oxalis. The shamrocks are a good two inches across! I never saw anything like it. They are dark, dark purple (that is why I got it!!) and loaded with lavendar blooms, which, when I brought it home and watered it, they started opening; so cute!

I ordered seeds for a sweetwilliam and viola.

Yeah!! Carly! That is what name is at the top of the picture on the stick, stuck in the pot. Under the picture of the bloom it says VRIESEA. My plant has a beautiful bloom in the center. It's colors are red-orange, orange, and yellow; just like the picture!!
