That's a good thing. The larger Rootlets being sold for transplanting are typically sourced from cultivated stock and are carrot like in appearance. Those carrot like roots are bigger but less desirable and less valuable. Your rootlets are good! I am sure you already know this but I just thought any new growers would benefit from knowing that bigger is not always better on rootlets.
Latt is right. Here is a pic of one of my roots I posted awhile back. Although this size root was pleasing to find, it does concern me with too much growth. If these roots could put this much growth on the first couple years and then slow it down it would be great but we will see how it works out in the end.
We all know how much you LOVE good dirt.... Check mine out there
Ahh,,,what would we do if we couldn't aggravate a little
Holly cow Hillhopper. I thought that root was laying on a black counter top. Now that you mentioned it, I looked a little closer and realize that is dirt. Is that woodland dirt or dirt you are using to plant expensive Japanese Maples in. lol
Looks like all you fellas have some good soil hidden away in that special secret woods.
It's woodland dirt. Now that you mention it, last March I potted up a couple of those maples in this woodland dirt versus my regular jap maple soil I use just to see if there would be any difference in growth . If I can think to take a pic ill post one but the woodland soil pots doubled in growth over the \"specialty\" soil.
