Hi folks!

Sorry for being off-topic, but I think I remember some of you talking
about growing Mirandolae some time ago. Since they are quite close to
Albizziae (I think), I wanted to ask, whether anybody managed to keep a
seedling of Albizzia alive for over a month - and if so: how? The seed
germinated within 2 weeks unter 100% humidity, I reduced the humidity
slowly to about 60%, and for 4 or 5 weeks the plantlets are doing fine.
I haven't exposed them to direkt sun, kept the soil (peat:sand ~ 2:1)
moist all the time, no strong wind. Then within day the leaved shrivel
up and apparently no effort can save the little fellows lives.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, have a happy Y2K,
