Some interesting seedlings

Postby lykaon78 » Sep 24, 2013 5:45 am

This my third year attempting seedlings... I started in late January and here are some interesting ones:
This one has Nigrescens in its backround:

2 with nice red petioles from Granny's Rouge (the first two are the same plant):

2 pretty little streakers, the right one is already settling into a nice variegated plant:

Those are looking great, and you are lucky to get some stable variegated plants right away like that. So many times where I have streakers that look like they might go to an edge or a center they just don't get there, even after years :???: . Really does look like you have a couple keepers there :)

Now if I can get them to survive the winter. I probably need to get them in the ground soon.

Any updates? Did you get them in the ground, did they survive the winter?

Great Seedlings! I started hybridizing about 4 years ago but lost almost all my seedlings this past winter. :eek: I'm just looking at it as starting with a clean slate and different parents.
