Here's a seedling from a streaked plant. What do you think? Any potential?

I would be happy to find it a batch of seedlings. Grow it on for a couple of years and see what happens.

How old is it? I don't think you can really tell about a seedling until it's at least 5 years old. You have one leaf that seems to be moving to a margin rather than streaks. The plant looks good now, but a few years will tell whether it stabilizes into a nice plant with margins or remains streaky and the form of the plant might also change. But definitely keep it and watch it for a few years.
