Right? ...

Oh, BTW - All are grown in a mix of about 1/2 seedling starter soil mix, and 1/2 sand. I put pebbles in the bottom for drainage. No containers have drainage holes. As for containers, I use little $1 store plastic rectangular pencil/pen (??) trays. Some are still growing in larger plastic half-sized ...
