I took 2 slices of the tomato and put in two small pots of mix soil. Every day, I diligently spray some water on them. Morning and evening. By 5th day, I noticed something sprouting from the soil in one of the pots.
I started planting on 28 November last year. Then on Day 21, I could see new set of leaves. These are called True Leaves. The first 2 leaves that come out from the seedling are called Seed Leaves.
Only when the true leaves were getting bigger (Day 28), then I transported the young seedlings to bigger homes. Few individual pots for the seedlings. By then, I could water them more (using watering can) and feed fertiliser on them. And place them directly under the sunlight unlike the first 2 to 3 weeks of germination.
Fast forward, on Day 40, few seedlings were growing well and sturdy. Hope that they will start to flower and bear fruits in few weeks time.
That's it for now on my tomato growing project. I will update when they are bigger, start flowering etc. Fingers cross!!
And since the Year of Tiger is just a couple of days away, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my Chinese bloggers and readers a "Happy, Prosperous and Wonderful Chinese New Year!!" Gong xi fa cai!!
