Still putting up flowers.

Winter 2024-25 project is to grow 100+ seeds collected from the Alba plants and grow under lights. Alba seedlings that flower white will be planted in a new bed far away from any pinks.

Making some progress, think it's going to be white



Seedling at the bottom of my Alba seed bed is a light pink. Must have crossed, because I only had 30 seeds that year, and couldn't have grabbed a seed pod from a pink plant.

Kris, thanks.

Well, it isn't white. Think the white tips is fading from the LED grow light. It is interesting that it has two stripes like Hederifolium. When I get a chance will take another picture with my camera, these were taken with phone.

Going to plant it outside next week or so, along with the Hederifolium seedlings. Another Purpurascens Alba seedling has buds forming. Hopefully when it's planted out the buds still bloom.

Will have to grow a lot of seedlings from the Purpurascens Alba plants and hope some white show up. Then plant far away.....

Another flower has opened, same plant as above post. It's very short so it's hard getting a picture. Will try again in a few days, when it's opened all the way. Hopefully, there is no darker nose, would be nice to have a light pink form. Seems the LED grow light does strange things to flowers.

Kris, I use Miracle Gro all purpose for the flowering plants. One tablespoon x 2 gallons of water.

I usually feed them every couple of weeks from Spring (Late May , early June) until they stop flowering. When it's really hot and no rain and they are drooping, I will water the bed twice in a week. Once with ferts, then again with plain water. When I water the purpurascense bed, usually do 6 trips so, 12 gallons.

Purpurascense  Alba seedling bed is an experiment. It's being fertilized with Bat Guano, Roots HPK and Bioag Ful-Power. So far I'm very happy with the progress. Will make an update video end of October.

Has two marks, no dark nose. This has to be a cross of the Alba and pink. Wondering growing out seedlings from this plant the two marks would disappear? Last picture,  lighten the image to be able to see the nose better.

Purpurascens Alba seedling bed.
Will make another video in a month to see the differences from now. Next week will be the last feeding with all three ferts, then switching to just the Roots HPK.

Probably going to dig up more seedlings come Spring, grow a couple more tubs under the LED's until they are flowering.  Would make faster progress in finding white flowering plants.



Bare spot is just starting to put up new growth.



Most of all the plants have buds forming.

No Alba flowers yet. Flower on the left is a nice pink shade, has two marks and no dark nose. Any like this will be planted in a bed together and hand pollinate with Alba pollen. Not sure if they will put up new flower come Summer, might have to wait another year to pollinate.
