'Splashed Leather' would not be my choice of a streaked plant. Noticed Flying Frog has 'Dorset Clown' on their list for $50 which is more than the SL. Much nicer grower in my opinion, but maybe others have had good luck.

I was once bidding on one at an auction, it went quite high $$$, later saw a mature plant and boy was I glad I had not wond the auction! If you are interested in hybridizing, DC has given us some very nice seedlings.

I am paying $27.00 for a second year tissue culture of Dorset Clown which is what they are selling for $50.00 except theirs would probably be a year or two older. I am also getting Kaleidochrome for $12.00 as a first year TC, the frogs have it for $35.00. I don't mind growing them out myself and they do bloom the first year so crosses can be made while they are still small. I am getting 8 streakers this year for under $200.00. They come from Q&Z through the co-op.
