First Seedling!

This is the very first baby from the self-crossing of the peloric strep flower.

The flower is quite large (although it is the very first time the plant bloomed) and it's quite symetric, but it's not the same as the parent flower. The "mother" flower had all petals the same with the pink striping coming out from the center equally on all petals. This included the upper petals which on this flower don't have the colored striping.

It's a thrill to see the first of any experiment though. I can't wait to show you more.
