2 months ago very little with any promise yet. a lot of cross pollinating last month and getting ready for hundreds of more seeds, when do I toss the old and make room for the new?

Those do not look too promising but I have no experience with seedlings maybe Keith can give a little advice??

Seedlings are like a box of chocolates, just keep trying.

Andy,

The seedlings in the photos are way too young to make an assessment. In another couple of years, you'll know if you've got something or not. I wouldn't dump anything yet.


Historical fact: Many of Richard Krukonis' plants were discarded seedlings of Ralph Davis which he felt were not going to be anything. I believe the much sought after Richard Krukonis cultivar was one of them. The "rule of thumb" is three years. I've seen some young ones look very promising turn albino. ;)
 
If you have room, I would keep them a couple of years. You must have patience.
