    Nice colouration from seed grown Cephalotus.

    Here's a picture I took of one of my better coloured seed grown Cephalotus:

    It came from a batch of seeds taken from a typical a few years back. Not sure if it's selfed or a cross, as I had a named clone flowering at the same time, but I don't own an Eden Black, so that rules that out.

    Beautiful plant w/ incredible color!

    Three questions:
    - do the seeds have any special heritage?
    - is there a significant difference in color among siblings? If so, that would be interesting to show as an example of genetic variability (as long as all are under same conditions).
    - how old?

    Thanks for sharing.
    All the best,

    No heritage that I know of, though slim possibility it could be a cross with a named clone. I didn't pot many of the seedlings and of the ones I did most of them were used for growing medium experiments, which many didn't survive. This is the only one that was transferred to my Cephalotus display tank.
