follow the breadcrumbs. keep notes. still stand back in puzzlement. the first two are the parent plants. the third and fourth are some of the seedlings from that cross. there are resemblances. yet each of the seedlings have nuances going off in slightly different directions. one is a little more pinched and skinny. the other a slightly stronger pink and a fuller flower. the biggest puzzlement is not why they are the way they are. it is what comes next ? should i go back to the parents and try different crosses with other parents in the mix ? or what is the next cross for those new seedlings ?

    I know not on crosses, what to try – but I do viscerally have an instant affinity for the peachier/pinker, fatter leaves parent/offspring – not a guru in your area of expertise, but they impacted me enough to want to comment! 🙂

      There are no rules. It is simply the choice of the person making the decision. There is no wrong choice. If you like one thing or another it is simply a matter to make choices to hopefully guide in that direction. They are all quite enjoyable.
