Here's what to expect
This purchase includes 3 individual seedlings, each in its own 4" travel pot. When they arrive, unpack them, stand them up, and lightly touch the top of the soil to check the moisture level. Water until the soil is moist but not drenched.
For the first 2 days, let the seedlings acclimate to the sun and fresh air in their travel pots outdoors. Give them 4-6 hours of sunlight and then place them in the shade for the remainder of the day. Check in on your seedlings every day to make sure their soil remains moist. Follow the transplanting instructions above when your seedling is ready for its new home.
