The 2014 Aucampiae seedlings continue to impress with their hardiness. This is also the prettiest pot with the various shades of green and red.
I planted mixed Aucampiae seeds, “Storm’s Snowcap”, and “Kurumen” in this pot (C392, C325, C332) so they are all Aucampiae but as you can see, vastly different.
Seedlings 1 and 3 have distinct purple hues and number 1, in particular, has some striking markings. Seedlings 2, 4, 5, and 8 are greens. I’m hoping one of those ends up being a “Betty’s Beryl”! Number 4 has a lot of yellow in it whereas number 2 appears to be just a basic green. Number 8 is more of a khaki green with brown undertones and has great camouflage. Number 5…I don’t know what is going on with number 5 but it sure is cool and is my current favorite! Seedlings 6, 7, 9, and 10 are reds. They are all basically the same. Number 9 looks darker right now but I think that’s just because it’s smaller.
So, if we had to guess…let’s try to place our Cole numbers! These are my guesses 🙂
C392 Storm’s Snowcap – Seedling #4
C325 Kurumen – Seedlings #6, #7, #9, and #10
C332 Kurumen – not really fair as these are also Kurumen. Could be #6, #7, #9, or #10 also. I have no idea – haha!
