learning permit

this is what is called a variegated seedling. it has both white and green tissues in the leaves. it is a new seedling this year. it started the year growing right up against one of its siblings. both of them were moved together to a better sunnier spot. a couple of weeks ago i separated them because the sibling was out growing this one. it was crowding this one out. the shock of being separated caused the loss of all the leaves and i thought it was lost. slowly new leaves came back. still it is a very tiny plant. it has only a thin strip of green chlorophyll running down the center of the each leaf. not much to make its own food and grow. it will be interesting to see how this one grows. and how long it takes to mature…

    Beautiful. I have planted a seed (it was a gift paper bag from a friend,) but I don’t know what it is… I am so excited now, what will it be coming out… Thank you dear John, Love, nia
