They came out in a matt created with the rosemary's surface roots in peat,
They were just sewn into the border of a rosemary plant that had recently been potted up.
After they germinated, I started spray-injecting the sides of the pot about 4 inches below soil level, and watering the rosemary slowly and sparsely in the middle of the pot so as not to get any water on the seedlings stems at soil level.
When i transplanted these, they came out in a pieces of a big round, with few tap roots and little to no transplant shock evident.
I think they had formed complex shallow root system with the rosemary's new roots seeking water at the surface.
They've been separated in 34 cups for about 6 days.
Some individuals, but a lot of multiples per cup too.
They look like they're doing ok and growing without any noticeable interruption.
The last ones pictured, the transplants i just now pricked out by loosening the soil with a stick, prying around roots and lifting by grabbing the stem and shaking lightly.
I had bottom-watered them yesterday. So, they were still moist.
Some good roots. I think they'll all be succesful.
I watered in the soil and packed some dry on top.
