    Cephalotus seedling colour variations.

    I have approximately 50 Cephalotus seedlings, all from the same mother plant. While looking at them earlier today I noticed variations in colours, some subtle but others more striking. The picture below shows a good contrast between two seedlings that grow within millimetres of each other. If they reach maturity, hopefully the one on the right will keep its good colouration.

    These are from seed collected from the mother plant in autumn. The plant produced quite a lot of seed, much of which went to others but I kept some for myself and have had nearly 100% germination. I sprinkled the seed onto moist peat/perlite/sharp sand mix and sprayed with water to 'stick' them to the surface. The seed tray (food storage container) has a clear lid in which I drilled a few ventilation holes, this sits on my growshelf under fluoresecnt lighting.
