    To be a bit more explicit, if you selfed your "Green Dragon" you should never call the seed or seedling offspring "Green Dragon". They should be called "Green Dragon" x "Green Dragon" or more simply, "Green Dragon" F2. Most of the resulting offspring will not have the same characteristics and naming them as the parent cultivar will add great confusion. Cultivars should only be reproduced asexually (cloned).

    Sorry, philcula, I need not give you that lecture. It was for the benefit of others.

    I have never tried seed from a "Green Dragon" plant, but I have selfed and grown seed from 'Red Dragon' x 'Red Dragon' and all of the resulting seedlings were red like the parent. Because the 'Red Dragon' seedlings are red, I think it is likely that many of the plants being traded as 'Red Dragon' are not from the original clone. I think that may be the reason that there are many reports that their 'Red Dragon' plants are disappointingly small. We had a post discussing this point a few months ago.

    I would be interested observations from anyone that has grown "Green Dragon" F2 seedlings.
