Fancy Trail?

Akron, OH(Zone 5a)

My young trailer got the first flower, it's delicate pink. I love the leaf variegation, she started branching nicely. Am I right about her ID?

Wonderful plant, the leaves look the same but the flowers are waaaaaaaaay brighter and darker. Probably the light thing too

Isn't funny how different the same AV can look? Check out these pics: http://www.astro.umd.edu/~avondale/Plants/squeezetoy/

Sonia, how big/old is your Fancy Trail?

Hi everyone! Here is my Fancy Trail that has been growing almost 2 years. I'm hoping it will be ready for our Birmingham show March 4. Around it are babies in solo cups. My blooms are sorta in between the light and dark pink. Is it bright light that causes the light pink?

Gorgeous Jamie!!
Different lights,temps.,fertilizers,and age of the plant are just a FEW of the things that can cause color variance.

Great plant Jamie, and only 2 years! Did it take a lot of work to make it that nice?

Interesting, some of the leaves are nearly white, mine are just 'dusted'. Do you grow it under lights? Mine receives only natural light by the window, it will be interesting to see it under flourescents

Wow Jamie thanks for sharing that is beautiful plant..can't wait for mine to look like that..

I did it by following the Japanese method. It probably has between 25-30 crowns now. It gets adjusted from medium light to bright top shelf right after a severe pruning and pinning down of the runners to now super bright middle top shelf to get blooms going (6 weeks until show). I was told at the last AV meeting that according to the rules, every crown must be blooming for show. I doubt that'll happen. I may put a heating mat underneath it 2 weeks before the show to help it out if it is not floriferous by then. I guess I can always bring it for a display.

She looks a winner to me, her shape is great. Good luck with flowers and show!

Thanks. I've done the same with Rob's miriwinni chimera.
I'm also doing an experiment. I put down leaves of the chimera and so far have 15 tiny plantlets. So far 1 has bloomed pink, 2 sparkly purple, and 2 chimera. Alas, I overwatered the chimera babies and killed them.
