Croton seedlings, 7 months old

My little Croton seedlings are now 7 months old and still pretty small. They’ve started to grow bigger leaves now that the weather is getting even warmer and the sun is shining more often. I don’t really know what to do with these yet, but it’s a fun little project to try and grow a common houseplant from seeds instead of just buying an adult plant.

I had to chuck out the mother plant because it kept attracting spider mites and started losing leaves. After trying to save it several times with different bug sprays, home made and store bought, I gave up. Luckily, its babies are looking pretty healthy.
