I may be in the wrong place, here, but I haven't seen any photos from those who are participating in the Night Lights project. Here are some of mine.

They look great Betty! I was wondering about other people too. Mine are coming along, but not quite as big as yours.
Instead of running after perfection, why not simply walk in faith?

Mine are as big as Betty's. We might have some flowers by summer!! For those of you who do not understand what we are talking about, I crossed DS Night Lights x self and sent seed to about 15 different people. Now we are waiting for the final results Hurray!

Mine are not nearly this far along. I have one that is about 3/4 inch tall. Others are merely green specks that appears very recently. Looking forward to see what we get!!

Thumb of 2014-03-30/BettyCessna/c3ea42 Not the sharpest picture I have taken, but that is a tiny bud on one of the DS Nightlight X self seedlings. The only one, so far.

I heard from Tony also, and he has buds on some of his! Can't wait to see what we produce. Unfortunately, my mother plant of DS Night Lights is not producing fantasy babies.

Nancy,

It is strange. This hybrid always gives me 50/50. Is it possible that you took leaf fragment from the leaf that bloomed not true? Have you tried more than one leaf?

My plant has been struggling so I haven't taken another cutting but plan to do so soon. The original cutting which gave me three babies came from a leaf that produced fantasy flowers. Just the luck of the draw I guess.

It has been very quiet on these boards, so I thought I would let you know the final results of my DS Night Lights x self project. I grew out 25 babies.
6 of the 25 were the same fantasy as the parent. 3 were a semidouble white with lavender stripes on the lower lobes!! Where did they come from?
The remaining plants were various shade of rose or burgundy - some with white throats. I didn't feel anything was worth keeping.

I have now crossed DS Night Lights with Spin Art (a very stable fantasy). I don't know if I will get anything more exciting or not. Stay tuned!

Nancy, did you keep any of the fantasy seedlings? I only saw one photo that you posted. Do you think any of them were darker than Night Lights? I am a sucker for fantasy plants if you kept any! Lovey dubby

I hope you get something great from this next cross. I crossed DS-Little Furry Arctic Fox and Spin Art, and got nothing but identical solid purple seedlings!

They were all identical to DS Night Lights so I didn't keep any.
