Planting Seedlings
    #3531366 - 12/22/04 01:13 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

You're all going to laugh, but i don't care because i still don't know.

My first intuition was to put it in with the sprout facing upward, but when i talked to my mom, she told me they go down so i did it. They're all popping up now, but it's the seed with just a little bit of visible green. This is right.... right?

This reminds me of the joke about a guy who was walking along a fence and heard someone saying over and over "green goes up" At the end of the fence he was curious so he looked around and saw cops planting trees.

If you have sprouts, the root goes down and the green goes up.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

It's the root tip, point it down.

I am by no means an expert on this matter but from what I remember form high school biology it doesn't really matter which way it is planted. the seedling will sort itself out, miracle of nature kinda thing... It might just take a little longer to sprout if you plant it the wrong way.

Silt's right. The roots have some heavy compounds in their vacuoles that are like gravity detectors. Even if you plant it sprout up, it'll eventually turn down toward the ground again.


But you should plant it sprout down.

pointy side with the taproot goes down. The seed should push through then the leaves will push off the split seed. Dont force off the seed but sometimes, rarely you need to cut a skin that was coaing the inside.
