Q.Carnations- Seedlings

Zone 91732 | Jass added on April 4, 2018 | Answered

Hello! So i’ve started carnations from seeds and in some pots I put more than two, so now I’ve got like 7 sprouted seeds in a pot. Do I have to pull them out and just keep 1 per pot? Thank you.

Sometimes they can survive with 2, 3, or even 4, but that would be it. Do not pull them out, though. Just pinch the top to separate it. This will avoid disturbing the roots of the others that you want to keep. This article will help you with the care of these after the seedling stage: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/dianthus/growing-carnations.htm
