    Kovachii a Chuck Acker seedling deflasked 10/19, not by me. Seedling was a little beat up in shipping, which happens. I have had it for about a month. Took off a lower leaf today and noticed two bumps. Are those new roots? Planning to repot tonight in rockwool and wondering how low to put in my medium.

    My attempt to zoom in using a jeweler's loupe. Hope that it is clear enough to see in close.

    Yes they look like roots. Cover all the roots including those starter nubs,

    David, thank you. New roots make me happy and I needed a second opinion to temper my excitement. Was the original potting just seated too high from the medium?
