  6. Phase 6


All seeds now have tall green stalks, two for the pumpkin compartments. However, behind the glass, the water evaporates almost instantly, and they require daily watering. I sometimes forget this watering, and in consequence, a third of the radishes have dried and died. The other seeds seem very healthy.
In the box, all that seems to be happening is moulding, and no growth is visible, apart from the radishes, whose tiny stems become more withered and pale with every day. I conclude that these seeds need soil.
There is a remaining three days until repotting.

Pumpkin leaves are very hairy in their first few days.
