These are some seedlings and I was enjoying their differences in leaf type and texture.

I was potting up seedlings and some older plants today. I thought I was running out of space, now it is beyond that! Once in 4" pots, now in 6" - 8" pots.

The first flat Left - Right, Top - Bottom.

#1, #2 & #6 - Arabicum x Crispum

#3 - Prominent (obesum)

#4 - Somalense

#5 - Ruby Elf (obesum, Rinoa seed)

#7 - Arabicum Dwarf Soodah

#8 - Obesum x Crispum

This tray has: Plants in tray from Left to Right, To to Bottom.

#1, #2 - Golden Bell

#3 - Obesum x Crispum

#4 - Arabicum x Crispum

#5 - Petch Na Wang x Self

#6, #7 & #8 - Mini Obesum's

#9 - Petch Na Wang x Self

#10 - Rinoa seedling ( I asked Rinoa to pick me up a seed grown plant from Taiwan, single Dark - I call it "Rinoa Eclipse" )

These 3 are seedlings from seed of Rinoa's

One certainly can see the differences among your trees. No wonder you needed to let go of some of your seedlings...needed space for the bigger pots. I thought you were acquiring more new trees. Hilarious!

Kadie you won. we posted at the same time and I got lost.

Rick I love it now I can see the difference in the leaves: size, shape, veins, and texture. Wish you could label them in the pic. Thanks for the view

No, not for awhile anyhow. I potted up alot today and going from 4" pots to 6" & 8" pots made quite a difference for space.
I had sent photo's of my Diamond K & Q seedlings to Dino to have them tell which ones they would not keep. I had given most of the less than favorites away already. Dino got back to me to say that they could all be nice plants. Well, not what I wanted to hear.

I have not even started w potting up these guys in photo's.

Dino's probably right...so keep all your Diamond K & Q and purge out some more of the others. Whistling

Marica,
I numbered them previous to photo, reading them from Left to Right, then Top to Bottom. Turned in the second photo to show top of leaves.

Sorry it shows very well. I will have to open it so I can see it side by side. I am getting to like comparing all plants for their differences.
New pain med makes me stoned. So some of my posting maybe off. Be glad when I adjust.

They look terrific Rick. How old are they now and what are you feeding those youngsters?

Marica,
Please do not apologize, I wanted to add to the photo's, but did not take the time.
Hope you get things settled and in control.
You are a very true Adeniumaholic.

Alice,
These are approximately 1 1/2 yrs. old. Definitely overdue for potting up.
Potted up 4 today that I will be keeping.

Rick, would you take a pic of the Golden Bells by themselves and post? I started some last December and I'd like to compare. Thanks.
