I have a few siblings to the above seedling that I'll be posting.

That seedling looks just like Indian Chief. The pink one looks like Vanity. Aren't seedlings exciting? Never know what we will get!

RE: Having fun with seedlings

Beautiful! It is fun, isn't it. Just wish it didn't take so long.


RE: Having fun with seedlings

You know, Shadow, I used to think the same thing. When I first started seedlings, it would take atleast 2 years to see a bloom. This year, however, I have a LOT blooming that just sprouted last spring (07). Shoot, some of them (like the HUGE Supreme Sultan x ? seedling) I actually tilled under after they sprouted... I'm loving it! :o)
