Check out these cool cotyledons on a couple of my Ipomoea albivenia seedlings. I added a view of normal coloration for comparison.

I wonder if the leaves will show variegated tissue? Hmmmmm

Weird Joseph...wonder if it is some type of nutrient deficiency Confused
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I suppose it is nutrient related buy why is one looking normal? I used the same lot of seed starting medium for all three. I'm enjoying the fact they are growing well and have not croaked because of damping off disease.

Do you have a lot of trouble with damping off?
If so have you ever tried watering with chamomile tea?
We(kids) did a science project here years ago and it really does work Thumbs up

I will try that method, thank you, Cinda. Smiling

The seedlings' leaves on the odd looking cotyledon plants appear to be normal and unvariegated. One plant seems to be less green color in its leaves than the normal cotyledon plant.
