The dates can not be completely correct here, as there has probably been more than 7 days growth between the last post and this one.  Either way, it was lovely to see the first leaves emerging on this plant.  It went complicated after this!  But at this stage it was lovely.

Can't remember, but I'm sure I killed a couple of these Paw Paw trees by trying to 'help' open the seed casings.

Notes from the time: So, I wasn't sure if they were getting on alright. The nice folks at Jungle Seeds told me to be patient, but of course I had to dive in and give a helping hand. One of the paw paw seedlings had leaves almost loose, and (we've all done it, right?) I gave the gentlest of tugs to loosen them. Well, I suspect I've ripped off those opening leaves, leaving a slightly incongruous looking bare stem. This was yesterday, and fortunately, I think I can already see new growth emerging, so its possible there is no harm done. I will be leaving the second germinated seed alone....definitely.
