I have 3 seedlings that I want to describe in my plant list. I'm not fully up on all the terminology so I'm asking for your help. For each of these plants, would you say they have a watermark? Or is it something else?

Seedling #1




Thumb of 2017-09-23/bxncbx/6a58c0
Seedling #5



Thumb of 2017-09-23/bxncbx/bdcd0f
Seedling #7

Thanks for the help!

Seedlings #1 and #7 have a watermark, or an "etched watermark" because of the thin surrounding band of deeper color.
Seedling #5 would probably best be described using technical botanical terminology, e.g. "something similar to a watermark", or "shadowy watermark". Whistling

Thanks! I was pretty sure #1 & #7 had watermarks. But since the flower on #5 is red and the "whatever it is" is yellow I wasn't sure if there was some other name for it having to do with the throat.
