Hans,
From twinscaling you raise progeny which is identical with the original.
Did you never spot a difference between Adam and Eve? This must be another story!

Thanks Gerd,
it IS another story! Hans seems not to know: As God made the man SHE was just exercising.

Hans,
congratulations to your success. Great to know, and to see, that it worked so well.

Best wishes,
Renate

It seems even the cat didn't know that the language of this Forum is English!

Gerd and Hans.....  ;D ;D

Gerry, I must concur with Renate, when God made Adam it was simply that she was working on a prototype...... and so the differences arose between Adam and Eve... ::) :-X ;)

Hans - Here you see the few hairs on the surface of one of those H. albiflos bulbils that formed on the leaf of the mother plant. Also the hairs on the edge of mother's leaf (none that I see on the surface), the curious white dots on the leaves and a flower today.

Hi John ,

thank you for the pics .
It exist some forms of H. albiflos with hairs - they are descriptet as H. albiflors v. pubescens - I will post later pics from my plants .
Such forms with white dots are descriptet as H. albomaculatus ( Baker )- I have before some month received two seedlings from w.c. seeds from such a form .

regards
Hans
