    Darn weeds!



    Some plants that can have/ do have orange coloration ... S. x "Orange Fire', S. x 'Orange Sunset', some other moorei (flava x leuco) clones, some mitchelliana (leuco x purp) clones, some catesbaei clones, and some flavas can appear orange-y as well in enough sunlight (like flava 'copper vase'). Although there aen't many sarrs that really do appear entirely bright orange like the fruit.
    Thanks!

    Finally, I'm sorry, got around to reading this thread. Seedlings are looking great. Mine are growing more slowly but I'm pleased with them so far. Keep up the nice work.

    Oh man how I've tried. Those weeds come right back every time. I'm thinking once they're ready for a transplant I'll do my best to separate them.

    Today is so gloomy outside, I'm glad I have these little guys to keep me occupided through the Winter months!

    When do you plan to sow your seeds?!?
