have: seed from standard dark blue NOID streptocarpus

Parent plant is a large dark blue strep, very floriferous, strong grower. Whatever it is, it's a handsome plant. I have enough seed to send out several small samples for SASE or swap.

Yes, I'll post this in the swaps area too...

Rr -

just as long as you and your swap friends know - that hybrids do not bloom true from selfing and there will be some variety in the progeny.

I'm counting on it--that's half the fun!

Streps do not give as much variability as Avs - so do not grow 100 of them. Probably 10 is enough.

I once grew the selfing of Moonlit Valley - if i am not mistaken - dark almost black purple. Got 2 types as result - mama copy but smaller flower - and vinca blue flower.

I'll probably grow a big bunch of'em. I like giving things like that away.

If you have any seeds / seedlings I'd take a few. You can email me. I'm still trying to master streps. I started some leaf cuttings hoping they will do better if they start out in my environment from the beginning. So far so good but they are still very tiny.

Would you happen to have any seeds left for a SASE?
I do have seeds of perennials, biennials, and some annuals for trade if you want.
Thank you.
