This is a seedling from seed of Mark Dimmitt. First time blooming for "Arabicum x Crispum".

I was looking at a Crispum on ebay today. It had very wavy thin leaves. Could this be a true Crispum? It sold so I don't have a pic.

It could be Marica. I tend to not buy from eBay (plants), unless it is someone that I know of or have been recommended. Too many scams w plants in particular.
I was told that "Crispum" as a whole is not started from seed because it is not known to be a strong plant. Crispum is used mostly for crossing with other species.
