Christian  --  I haven't been deliberately breeding space-agers long, but the results appear to be similar to non-space-agers, with features of the parents showing up (or not) in varying degrees in the offspring.   I just can't recall seeing many dark ones.  That said, my first space-ager seedling was completely unexpected --  not from space-age parents  --  and was a dark red, but I was never able to do anything with it.  I have Triple Whammy, too, but never got anything from it.   
Even though your seedling is a dark blue self, its parents indicate that if you breed with it, you'll get more colors.  The wilted horn isn't a good sign, though.  Several of the better hybridizers have registered seedlings with Triple Whammy in the pedigree.  Why don't you try it with a space-ager having good, broad falls and see what you get?  --  Griff

How do SA's usually inheirit?  I've produced two dark SA's this year and I'm sure that dark was not the intention at the time of the cross.


Here is 05-090-04: Thornbird X Unfurled Flag.  One sibling to bloom was not SA, but was similar in form and color.  The sib is going to compost.  This one's horn wilted...which may send it to compost too.


Personally, I don't like the SA's that are all one color...I like more colors, like Triple Whammy.
