I'm pretty proud of myself, and these little plants!
Both continue to defy the odds!
I know the pics leave alit to be desired, but I THINK you can see some of the variation in the picture.
Again, too early to get very excited but there's a lot of variety in there!
Sadly most of the ones with the heaviest color influence seems to be the "fairy tear" type that I've read about from larianns site, I assume they won't persist long...
But that's plenty of good growers in there with some banding on the stem, my fingers are crossed for good growers with unique traits...
I've pretty much given up on the idea of hybridization for profit, too much headache!
To have something that possibly 100% unique, AND interesting is still very attractive though!
Not to mention the botany lesson these little guys are giving me!
They've certainly relit my interest to cross aroids!
Working this far out of zone is a pain... All I need is 30 good days for berries to ripen, sounds easy but with my collection in the rebuilding stages, blooms will be sparse, and late, I'm hoping that but keeping some in ground, and some in pots, I'll have more options.
I really gotta get fresh plastic for my greenhouse this year!
That's been crippling!
