Do the color of the attached seedling leaves mean anything all mine are green except a few?

Do some Adenium have variegated foliage? Maybe you have a couple of variegated varieties in the mix?

Edited to add: I bet some of the more knowledgeable Adenium growers would be able to offer advice: http://garden.org/forums/view/adenium/

Adenium seeds very often don't resemble the parent plant. From what I've read, it's always exciting to see what your seedlings will look like. It would be great if you do get some varigated ones, but a lot of different things can cause odd leaf colorations. Come join us in the thread that Lin told you about. That is where most of the Adenium action goes on. Smiling

Don't worry about it. It takes a while to figure it all out. You can go to your profile and see all your posts, and see where they were posted. You had been in the Adenium forum and then this one post ended up in the "Ask a question" group. In any case, you'll get help and good information.
