    I have a bunch of seedlings up in the greenhouse from a suspected Acer sieboldianum (could be a hybrid, the seedlings will tell the tale), plus some of the communal pots with last year's seedlings have a couple of new babies up. Looking forward to see what they turn out like, pictures to follow.

    Anyone else like to share?

    These are the seedlings from the suspected Acer sieboldianum, eleven showing so far, with two or three quite far advanced

    Hi maf!

    I've grown sieboldianum other years, but I don't remember the edges being so indented early on. It will be interesting to see what you get.

    With the drought last year we ended up with a very poor seed crop, I have a single tray of mixed JMs, of which a few are up now. But a friend in the US with a stupendous collection was kind enough to send me a package, bless. So there are various starting to come up, but still all at the cotyledon stage. A full tray from 'Ryusen', some are already keeling over, haha.

    I have quite a few A. scheiderianum from 2 years ago, these seem to stay true most of the time.

    No pics yet...

    Cheers, -E

    P.S. I see I have a few sieboldianum up, in a tray from 2021. Within the last day or so. So we can compare progress on these if they live.

    I through some seeds into a tray, quite a few have germinated but only one so far has proper leaves, the large trees are the parents and i have no idea what they are.

    A close-up of the leaves would help.

    Hi AlainK, thanks for that, i wasn't looking for an identification but as you asked here are a couple of leaf shots.

    Oh, you weren't, were you? ^_^

    All right then, I think I know, but since you're "not looking for an identification" I will keep it for myself and not bother you any longer... ;0)

    A Korean Maple perhaps?

    Here's some pics of seedlings germinating here. I unexpectedly had a lot of fridge space, so I put the seeds directly into the trays, then bagged the trays for stratification. Seems to have worked!

    There were the pics I actually meant to attach. Different seedlings of supposedly pseudoheldreichii, but I think it is likely pseudoplatanus, perhaps Prinz Handjery. Nice to see a deep purple so early, that bodes well for a few of these. The other trays were first to sprout, in the fridge, little white cotyledons when I pulled them out. Ryusei and Nakahara beni.

    Whew, hard time with this post! Sorry if it's messed up.

    It seems that a gravel driveway makes a good germination medium for Japanese maples. Around half a dozen were spotted mostly in the least driven or walked upon areas!

    I’ll be trying hard to look after these two..I know it’s a dangerous thing taking photos of young seedlings! IMG_0397.jpeg IMG_0396.jpeg

    My risk-lowering strategy is to take pictures of trays, not seedlings, haha.

    Mine have been moved inside, now that there is an inside, and seem happy.

    There don't seem to be any variegated or reticulated in the batch, but some red dissectums I think. I'm even better at killing these than the others!

    Haha they’re looking great.

    I’ve never had a white leafed seedling before..what’s really odd is that it self seeded in large Osakazuki pot over my mums - she has no Ukigumo cultivars over there
