    I have no clue as to what to do about this. I have a good sized collection of s. oreophila. Most first came to me with very little color. When Joe Mazrimas gave me a piece of one of his, it was all green. Well, Joe's clone was definitely all green in his greenhouse. I put it out with the rest of my new babies. Dustin Truesdell gave me a piece of his beautifully veined plant. Heavily veined, and very attractive! I call it the Catalani-Truesdell clone. A must have in my opinion!
    The problem? Well, the first year, Joe's clone took on red veining. Not too much, but all green went away! Dustins clone colored up nicely, just like his pics of them. Even a couple of clones from Ron Lane took on a touch of color. A copper color on the lid. Clones 1 and 2 from Ron Lane were sent as lightly veined. Ok. Copper lid, light veins. At least the light veins was right. That was year one with these guys.
    Year 2. The "problem" starts! First, Joes plant comes up, red veined to beat the band!. Lid reddish. What happened?? I had an all green here. Was it sick?
    Catalani-Truesdell clone. Well, this is SCARY! (faint of heart should NOT read this!) The bottom of the tube turned purple. EEK! The purple veining in the tube bled into the surrounding tissue ever so slightly. Nice effect! In the throat, the heavy main vein in the throat of the plant changed! It grew!!! It now fills the throat, and has spread under the hood, not quite reaching the edges of it. A purple throat and underside of the hood? What happened to the veined only (heavily veined too) throat. Why did the purple spread, and become different looking from where it came from? Dustins greenhouse. What is this sickness??
    Ron Lanes clones 1 & 2. Well, This year, they came up big and strong. The light veins turned red, and became moderate veining. The lids are a red copper color, and overall, is quite attractive. It is veined all over in red, and the upper tube has a very slight red flush. Sick! Sick! Sick!
    LOL! OK. So they aren't sick. The only thing I can think of is how much sun they got. Where they are presently from must have had a different amount of sunlight and they responded to the amount of sun with as much color as they could muster. Joe's clone was grown in a shaded greenhouse. He is amazed at the change in his plant. I am too! Dustins clone can only be the result of the 13 1/2 hours of sunlight they get here. This clone is so beautiful, it hurts my eyes to lok at it. I am still trying to get Forbes or Noah, heck, ANYBODY who knows how to take pics and post them for me. Tough being computer illiterate! I have no idea how much light Ron's clone got, but these turned out to be quite the show stoppers, along with the other clones mentioned.
    The real problem? How to share these plants with everybody!!!!!!!!

    The obvious way to start is to send divisions of all of them to me immediately.

Oreophila 'Bugweed'!

    Because, that plant is protected. And can only be given away as a gift, EXCEPT for within the state. So with them being in that state, that's the only state they can sell them to. And why would they want to give them away to anyone outside the state? Yah, they prolly don't. lol
