Seedling ID, aloe vera Qs
Okay, I totally made a noob gardener mistake. I started seedlings for the first time ever, but didn't make note of what was what. This is partly because I had to do it twice, as the first time, nothing sprouted. The second time, the seeds I sowed sprouted, but so did the seeds that had been sown earlier. Eeep. Then I did some thinning, and moved healthier-looking seedlings to other places. So now I have even less idea what's what for some of them. There are 6 options: 3 types of tomatoes (beefmaster, sweet 100, and 1 other that I can't remember), basil, rosemary, and cauliflower. I'm pretty sure I know which ones are the cauliflower (the frail/skinny ones) and basil (the short, squat ones), but have no idea on the others, particularly the tomato types. I don't know if it's even possible at this stage to tell them apart, but I thought I'd at least see if any of you recognize them even at this early stage so I can start planning my eventual transplanting map, depending on what and how many I have. One of the tomatoes, but who the heck knows which? Another one of the tomatoes, possibly? Maybe? I think this one might be a rosemary? I also have a question about succulents, specifically aloe vera. I know they require very little water and not-so-rich soil, but I recently transplanted a newly bought aloe and didn't have much choice so I used regular potting soil. The leaves don't look very healthy to me, kind of thin/dry on the ends (rather than plump throughout), but I'm afraid to water it because I don't want to kill it with overwatering. Does anyone know about succulents and can tell me if this aloe looks okay or needs water/more sand/etc.? Also, has anyone ever transplanted aloe pups? Is the little growth popping up on the left a pup? When is a pup ready to be transplanted, and do you just pull it apart from Mom?
