    Grow Your Own Giant Sequoia Tree

    Hi Thomas, just two more images to have a better look on them. The one that's been drying out slowly (for weeks now), and the other one which has some "drying/discolor" on tips of branches.

    Grow Your Own Giant Sequoia Tree

    Hi Tomas, I year ago I planted mine (and reported it here with some questions), now they seem to be in trouble :( Out of three one (photos 1 and 2) is drying out, the second (photo no. 3) is ... bit odd, different color on tips, and the third one (in the background on photo 2) seems to be doing fine.This drying out has been slow (in the course of few weeks even), so I'm wondering if there is still chance for it to return to normal. I'll try watering it some more. For this whole time it's been watered mostly once a week, depending on the soil moisture (i was really careful not to have it too moist).The one with changed color seems to have dried out tips of the branches, but also seems to be holding on that... what is happening here? Opinion?

    Forgot to add, those opened are bending toward the window, light source, should I put them someplace else, like in total shade, so they don't grow bent?The closed one is just bending down, the opposite way.UPDATE: And now it opened because I've put it outside on some sun/shade mix under some tree.But all of them are less open than those on your photos, is that normal? Should I expose them to sun at all at this stage? How much and how often should I water them? They're about a week old now.Sorry for all the questions, first time doing this and really excited. Would hate it so much if they die, started to care for them as if they were my children :)

    Hi, it worked, I have several of them now with cotyledons, but today one of them just closed them. Like it was wide open yesterday, today they're shut like an umbrella. And in general all cotyledons on seedlings seem like losing "freshness", like that green is a bit more yellowish on tips. Any thoughts?First two photos are from yesterday (you see cotyledons open in the largest pot) and other two are from today (last one is the closed cotyledons)
