variegated henglan

rredbbeard(SE CT USA/zone 6)February 10, 2012

I purchased henglan seed from China a few months ago, and the first real leaves are appearing. Several of these little plants seem to be nicely variegated, which is a pleasant surprise. Has anyone had this happen with theirs? Usually I have terrible results with variegated seed, and had actually decided not to buy any more.

I'll post pics later.

We purchased a large number of seed from China a few months ago including variegates, LOBs etc. These proved to be extremely slow. In trying to find out why, we have been told that the growers in China could be picking the seed before they ripen in order to get the next crop growing, ie in order to "sell". We also bought Japenese seed and while more expensive tended to be more vigourous. Nothing however beats locally grown. Just make sure the seed you get has properly matured on the plant.
