I have had a few seedlings sprout white leaves. However, none of them survived very long,unfortunately.

Yes , it looks like an albino, which will not survive past maybe four leaves. If there is a little green in the leaves it can make it and become a variegated one.

Wowee! I would 'micro graft' it. It probably won't live on it's own. Try giving it a LOT of nitrogen, anything that's very high in the first number. Bat Guano is good, Blood meal, and all sorts of other yucky stuff is high in nitrogen, the stuff that makes green plants green.

The other seedlings had the bright red stem? I had one amongst many that was hot pink with green leaves, it's growing now, should bloom in another month or two. Can't wait to see if it's anything special.

Grafing it maybe the way to go,but its still too small for regular grafting,so I may try a side graft in which I slice the side of a healthly plant and make a small slice in the red one on the side but leaving the roots intact.I've done this in the past with high sucess rate.

I'll second that, WOWEE

If my stupid yard was flat instead of dangerously steep, I'd probably be raising that many babies too. Ha, everyone here wants whites. I say I have a double purple and their eyes glaze over, can't imagine such a thing, I guess.

You have me interested in those pots. How much does one weigh? I like the right-hand side one.

The round pot on the right is around 6 oz.As for white desert roses i have a few seedlings but they need a little more growing time.
