This is a sibling to the velvet top RUSTLER X SATAN'S MISTRESS. And sort of
an answer to Griff's hope I'm working with that one. TB seedlings are more
at risk of being tossed on the compost pile than any other seedlings. AB
seedlings have the advantage of containing aril genes and that buys them
more time and elicits more patience.
I suspect that the velvety top comes from  the aril ancestry of SATAN'S MISTRESS.  I've observed it in arilbreds, enough to suspect that it is somehow related to diamond dusting, but not worked with it very much.  Have you examined the flower with a high-powered magnifying glass or low-power hand-held microscope?  Even 10X shows the effect, although 30X is better.
