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?
Fancy Trail is a dbl pink variegated,so I think you are right.
Here's a good picture.
Wonderful plant, the leaves look the same but the flowers are waaaaaaaaay brighter and darker. Probably the light thing too
Hi Carpathiangirl..I ordered a Fancy Trails from VB and it looks just like yours..a lighter pink..I think it'll get darker with time..thanks for sharing..
The fflowers look much lighter on Lyndon Lyon's site.
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 maria ..my fancy trails is small..I got maybe about a month ago or less.
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!
