It’s rainy season, time to plant the seedlings! These were grown from seeds that were planted in October 2015. They are the biggest of the seedlings we have growing in the tree nursery. A lot of the seedlings have grown so robustly that their tap roots have struck out of the bag and are growing into the soil of the nursery floor. Uh oh, we will have to do some careful digging to get them out of the nursery.
These seedlings will be planted inside tree lines. The Madre de Cacaos will serve as nurse trees, providing shade for the young trees while they are not yet established. According to the Miyawaki method of reforestation, a seedling will need some extra care and attention for the first three years.
Turns out I made way too many labels. I didn’t account for the seedlings that didn’t survive.
The Total Seedlings Planted:
Akle 149 pcs
Pangi 102 pcs
Palomaria 270 pcs
Lamio 78 pcs
