A STREAK ON STEROIDS?

Postby malaprop » Mar 17, 2007 11:36 am

All of these streaks were planted the 3rd week in October 06. (I have plenty more streaks 1/2 the size of these or even smaller--these are my largest.)

They all are throwing the same new leaf. All are in 3-inch band-pots except for fat albert, who HAD TO GO into a 1-gallon pot about 10 days ago.

Fat albert measures about 9-1/2 to 10 inches across, the ones in bands about 4-1/2 inches. (I don't have a fancy setup--old flourescents, 4 - tubes.and only two shelves and really no room for 1-gallon pots anyway.)

About every other year I get one solid colored hosta seedling exhibit this abnormal growth, but having a streak that is OUTGROWING THE PLAIN ONES,? NEVER.

What causes these fat alberts? I had a L. Surfrider tc that took off, and continued the rapid growth in the years to follow, and towered over the other tc of L. Surfrider I had.

Anyone else have streaks from October planting? What's their size?

Fat albert is out of Delta Pride, OP

I took out the tape measure and I have a number that are over 12 inches wide but none look as fine as yours.
Great looking seedling!
