Golden mirabilis in the making?
« on: December 03, 2012, 00:57:29 »
and here is another pot of my mirabilis seedlings. One of them is rather different, when it was germinating the pigmentation was very slow to develop and I thought i was getting an unpigmented mirabilis but it suddenly changed colour overnight much to my dissappointment.

However as it grew it started to produce golden coloured leaf and the pigmentation of the "umbilical cord" started to change colour again to more green unlike the rest still quite red. Now it is looking almost like a young akebono seedling at the moment...quite exciting really....we shall see what becomes of it.

That one must be getting some special care as i cabn only imagine it might be one in a million. Good luck with growing it to flowering stage. Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards

Thanks :) Yes Eddie It will get royal treatment. I actually feel a bit nervous growing such delicate thing as I don't want to lose it.

My goodness Michael, I never realized that the Mirabilis seedlings have that "umbilical cord" - can't wait for the sun to come up to check whether mine has the same - never noticed it or seen anything like it. There is definitely something special with the 'golden one'. Thanks for sharing this, just shows that there is always something to learn.

I made quite a few crosses with Mirabilis this flowering season and wonder whether the crosses will have the same "umbilical cord".

Hi Rouzell, the mirabilis hybrids won't have such as long  "cord" but slightly longer than other clivia seedlings. There was a post by someone that I can't remember showing their mirabilis hybrid seedlings.

Making my own mirabilis hybrids is still a dream for a few more years...lol
