Bitter melon and Ridge gourd plantlings

I planted bitter melon and ridge gourd seeds a couple weeks ago, and am the proud observer of happy healthy seedlings braving it every day outside on my deck in full sun.

I had to place the seeds on top of my router in a sealed ziplock baggie so they would reach ~80F needed for their germination.

Rapid growth in the one week between these two sets of pictures.

Both are vining plants and I need to set up a trellis for them to grow on. They should be ready for planting in the ground in a couple weeks here.
