Seedlings of interest

The candleglow seedling below shows some very nice cupping on a heart shaped leaf.

The Swoosh seedling picture show a very nice yellow with a broad white stripe in the center. Notice the underside of the leaf to see the real effect.

That is a 8-) leaf & being able to see the stripe thru the bottom is not something I remember ever seeing before... :hmm:

This is the leaf you did not see clearly in the first shot.

Cross

Postby wzbt03 » Mar 15, 2007 2:04 pm

I believe this is a cross of two different streaked plants.

Comparison photo below of a greener swoosh.
