Re keeping a seedling with a good flower (and other good
characteristics) to see if a leaf might sport, Andrew Simmons of
Warrenorth Nursery in UK does this.  Of course, he knows there are
colored leaf varieties in the genes.  He showed us how sometimes the
color comes on only one side of a stem/branch/whatever! and how he
carefully slices it down the center to grow on the colored leaf side.
His varieties are quite lovely.  He mentioned how he keeps his seedlings
longer than does Brian West for the above reasons.  Brian quickly sorts
his out.
