Chimera?

rhynnoApril 10, 2010

Hi everyone,

This might be a daft question but one of my NOIDS has been having an identity crisis lately. Up till now it has bloomed white with tinges of purple (often the petals are only outlined in purple). But now it has started to pinwheel a bit. Is it becoming a chimera (see pics below) and if so is there anything I can do to encourage it? I took the bloom stalk after it had finished blooming and am currently trying to root it. I understand that propagation by this method is kind of hit and miss if it creates a chimera or not.

Any info or advice is greatly appreciate.

Thanks!

Ryan

Hi Ryan,

Well, they are definitely sporting. Whether they become pinwheels or chimeras, time will tell.
