Re: Ruffly style arms.


Hi Scarlett,

Oh, such a good turnout for your first seedlings!!  I really like the Picture Book X Parisian Dawn seedling, too.  Nice colors.

Regarding keeping the ruffly stigmatic lip -- it's literally up to you.  Do you have room for it?  Do you have patience to see it bloom again, maybe the color will improve a bit.  Or, if it has great plant qualities and nice buds & branching, maybe you could keep it and use it as a parent.  Even though you don't like the colors, it has all the qualities of the parents you liked and used to create it.  :-)  

Happy for you!

One of my crosses had the most amazing ruffly style arms.  Didn't like the color.  Should I keep it?

There is a stigmatic lip in there somewhere.
