Sport Of Shimai

In reference to the Blog of August 1st and 15th, it is now apparent that the plant has mutated in that all the blooms are now reflecting a purple overlay in the green strip.  Several examples are illustrated below.


It is not that the green strip is absent nor has diminished; rather there is a purple overlay as can be seen in this closer image of the bloom.  I have already cultured the stem and have a tiny plantlet developing.  In about 8 months we will see if there is some stability to this mutation or this plant is just a one-off that may change back or lose the trait.  Click on the images to enlarge them.



On a totally different note you may find a few slight modifications to the site.  When you click on any of the sites I have in the blog roll it will open that site in a new window allowing you to return back to CHIMERAAV.COM by just  closing the tabs at the top of the screen.  You will also note that the Image Gallery has been restored as well as the ability to post comments has been fixed.   Finally my shopping site is being rebuilt.  I expect it to be up and running shortly.

    Hope you could propagate this new sport and retain this fantastic pinwheel character!

    So far I have a small plantlet rooting. I will know if I have something in about 8-9 months. Thanks for the encouraging words.
