    I have noticed in comparing pics of my original "Blue" sandersonii with those of the internet and my SG plants, that the second generation I have produced appear to be losing the bifurcated "ears" the species is known for. This may indeed be a hybrid strain, though I have no idea what you cross sandersonii with to produce the "blue" plants

    And in other news, at least 4 stalks are growing in the U. calycifida pot. The most recently flowering stalk is also producing far darker flowers than my first, so there are at least 2 distinct strains in here...

    The angry bunnies are definitely back in force!

    And as you can see here, in the second generation the sandersonii "blue" plants clearly lose those ears. The color pattern mostly stays however.

    U. calycifida again too. Three separate stalks now bear blooms, and so far all about the same shade of purple. I know there's a lighter clone in there, maybe one of the other 3 stalks will turn out as such.

    U. calycifida in full bloom. Ignore the crappy background paper....

    Also, a different clone from those above of the SG "Blue" sandersonii, showing some variation in the second generation, and that while not as strong ,some of them still show ears...

    Nice calycifida flowers! How tall are the stalks? I'm worried that the container I am growing them in would be too short if they started blooming.

    The stalks reach about 6-8 inches, or at least that's what they're at so far. Not sure just how tall they can get though.....

    I can't wait to see how the next generation of U. Sandersonii 'Blue' looks like, what do you think it could have hybridized with?
