    this colour on agnata ,is perenn , year to year , and reproductible by seeds , without tubes ?

    jeff

    These plants are grown under either T8 or T12 2 tube 4' fluorescent fixtures.

    These are perennial plants, and because the plants are so similar, i definitely believe these are reproducible again from seed...something i am currently working on.

    As for growing them without tubes, that is something i haven't yet tried.

    Here are some pics of this plant's just opened flower.

    These plants were sown from seed just over a year ago, and the two biggest plants are now flowering.



    This one is working on its fourth flower.



    The same flower from above, grown out a bit more.



    Another plant has just opened another flower.



    It is similar to the first flower shown, except it has much less splotching around the flower opening.

    In 2013, a few of these P.agnata flowers were either self-pollinated or cross-pollinated with the darkest sibling clones.

    On July 28, 2013, the seed produced from those pollination attempts was sown, resulting in about 200 seedlings springing up.

    Those seedlings were observed; the first ones to color up and darken their early leaves were fed and allowed extra growing space, eventually being moved to avoid overcrowding.

    Of those 200 second generation seedlings, here are a few that have been chosen to either be grown on or worked on further.

    The largest specimen, on the far right, is a clone/leaf pulling of the dark 'mother' in the first post of this thread, for comparison.



    It is the parent of all the other seedlings in the pic above and the pic below.



    One of these second generation seedlings seems to be showing more of the blue pigments than the other colored clones,



    which for the most part, tend to have more of the red to reddish-brown pigments.



    This clone was chosen for its color and ability to color up very quickly from typical 'drought mode' yellow.



    It will be interesting to follow up with this clone.



    Hopefully it will hold the keys to unlocking



    a dark indigo colored 3rd or 4th generation P. agnata.

    It was warm enough today to take a pic outside in full sun.

    I don't think I've ever seen a plant with leaves that luscious red in color. You thought about registering any of these as cultivars? They clearly qualify.
    Side note: if they ever get propagated they're on my wish list
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
