    Identifying Seedlings?

    Is it possible to identify which cultivar seedlings belong to? I know each one will probably be different, and a lot will probably end up being typicals, but how early can you identify a cultivar, if at all?

    Cultivars cannot be maintained through seeds. A cultivar must be divided from the mother plant to be maintained.

    Yup, French3z is right. However the characteristics of the parents will show up in varying degrees in the seedlings. Pick the ones you like and repeat !

    Oh I see. So you can't recreate a cultivar through seed, only "create a new" one?

    Correct Nick, but before it is recognized as a cultivar it must stand apart from the typical form or other registered cultivars and then must be registered. Only then will it attain a name such as B-52 or Akai Ryu.

    Well, before Pyro steps in, I'd like to point out that, technically, some cultivators can be reproduced through seed. The only one I can name off of my head right now is S. leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek White,' but I know there are others.
    However, as the others said, cultivators should only be reproduced through vegetative means as a general rule.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    actually that is incorrect
    a very limited number of seeds may carry the cultivar trait.
    how else do you think we get many of the hybrid cultivars that are crossed between two
    a high percent, usually all will be typical but there are instances where it passes through seed.

    EDIT:
    Although if it does contain only a few of the traits, it is not the cultivar
    it must match description perfectly and as far as i know the only ones that can be done easily are
    Dentate Traps
    Justina Davis
    or other color variations so long as it matches perfectly with cultivar description
