A Reversible Sport?

Got this Ae.tayoensis pup from a recent order. Just wondering if anyone has experienced such a 'sport' from your Ae.tayoensis? What are the chances of reversion? Thanks!

Hi Lyndi

I don't see for what reason you are considering this offset to be a sport, pot it on & feed it & it will grow just nicely as per any other Ae. tayoensis, mine were just the same.

Thanks, pinkbrom. Did you mean to say it's normal for a Ae. tayoensis pup to be reddish?

Hi Lyndi

Yes I think so, mine were like yours, but now they are nice green leafed plants with red stems, haven't flowered one yet, looking forward to that event.

Lyndi, Ae tayoensis will show more red color if you subject it to stronger sun and a dryer soil. Your tayoensis is ok. My tayoensis is just puping before it flower.
