1949 seeds

Baton Rouge area, LA(Zone 8b)

I`m awaiting spring too. I have been trying to grow some other besides the 1949 morning glories inside and while the ones that didn`t die as a seedling are making it fine I sense they like it hotter and more sunny than is comfy for us. I`m thinking a plant room seperate from everyone else can help accomodate the need for higher temperature and light allowed to come in through the windows.

I might play around with the set up and lighting later. Right now I`m experimenting with some cheaper less rare guinea pigs. :)

I`m going to start mine after the warm weather and plant it in a special secure area to keep it extra safe and nurtured with the needs met.

Just a note on the possibility of genetic abnormalities...this is not always a bad thing, folks! Genetic abnormalities occur in nature on a regular basis. This is how we get our wonderful and diverse plant species. Most of the time a mutation is bad for the plant, and it will not thrive or be out-competed by normal species. Sometimes, however....the mutation is beneficial to the plant, providing a new protection or survival strategy. It can also provide a new and unique type of bloom!

Just found this thread this evening and it is absolutely rivetting! I am absolutely on the edge of my chair! Bravo!

We are all waiting to hear, how are the babies doing? The suspense is killing us.

No sign of anything here yet.

Any good new?

Mine seem to be doing well. They are about 6" high and green and growing. I am debating whether to prune them or transplant and trellis in a one gallon container. Any thoughts from anyone with experience would be welcomed. If these were the ordinary mg seedlings, I wouldn't hesitate to prune them back, but unsure/uncomfortable doing so with these.

Id not do any cuting yet

That is awesome! I have hope for my 3 seeds. I can hardly wait! You must share pictures!!!

scio, oregon, OR(Zone 8a)

I would not do any pruning at this point!

I'm so jealous! Nothing here yet. :-(

I got four of these wonderful seeds. Excuse the goofy picture of me - I couldn't look good in a picture if my life depended on it!

Here is a picture of the three that sprouted:

Hey, those are really looking good! Gently transplant them to larger containers. I would just grow them in containers so you will be sure to get seeds this summer!

This has been the most fascinating thread to follow!

KayJones.... I recognize those kind of containers they are in. : )
I use those also. SONIC, hot fudge sundae with nuts, please. LOL They are great for starting seeds.
You are doing a good job, they look healthy.

The plants vivible in the photo here
have features consistent with either Ipomoea nil or less possibly Ipomoea purpurea var.diversifolia...

The size of the cotyledons are very large...appreciably larger than what would be seen in an Ipomoea purpurea...and surprisingly large in relation to the size of the seeds...and no signs of any type of seed embryo dehydration damage...the seedlings actually look perfect...

A very different type of cotyledon than was first posted by phicks here

The first leaves present are showing features of early trilobed leaves...as can be seen by the inward cutting and indentations present on the perimeter of the leaves...possibly of I.purpurea var.diversifolia,but the overall look is of an Ipomoea nil...

Looks like the seeds that all had a very consistent look have so far yielded some relatively unforseen surprises...

Certainly will be interesting to check out the continued novelties that come from some of those growing these out...

Very enlightening...(!)...and a wonderful insight into learning...



P.S. - Any closeups of the cotyledons and true leaves would be a most welcome addition to the display...

Still lurking.....and facinated. I'm so glad that there are actual plants! I can hardly wait to see what the flowering is like.

scio, oregon, OR(Zone 8a)

I was expecting diversity from this group of seeds, since the package claimed to be a mixture. The actual seeds looked rather uniform, though.

Kay, you rock girl.

(I can't help with the experiment, since I am a seed-murderer, but I'm having fun lurking!) :-)
