Thanks, Ronnie. I was surprised to see how large were the cotyledons. They show the yellow leaf genetic mutation.

Here is another Ipomoea nil I hope will thrive indoors. Note the slightly curled edge on the first leaf. You can't really see that trait unless you click on the photo.

Here is species Merremia emarginata. If we are lucky we'll see yellow flowers from this small vine one day.

Ipomoea cardiophylla is showing a little of the tissue that will form the corolla. It will gradually change from purplish to blue.

Ipomoea cardiophylla was waiting for me this morning. It seems to have adapted well to being grown indoors on a windowsill that receives 7 or 8 hours of sunlight.

It's so pretty...just look at that yellow center Hurray! Lovey dubby Hurray!
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 started 12 different morning glory seeds on the 20th and all but one germinated...hoping to see some flowers in the middle of winter Crossing Fingers!

They will be going upstairs in the extra bedroom under lights, away from the cats Whistling

Pictures soon Smiling

I started one purp and one triclor but the tricolor rotted, busy so don't want to start more...want to save some space for those special ones I'm getting Green Grin!

The nils are all from ones I grew, so we'll see what I get. I'll try for a few pics later on tonight.
My fingers and toes are cold from doing lights outside...a wee bit colder than I'd like Thumbs down
