Sandi, it's a progress! :-)
You'll have many and they're growing! Wow! It's only question of a few months to not to know where to put all of them :-)

Even though they are tiny and haven't really developed their true leaves yet, I think I already detect a few differences in the babies.

Here is a picture of the leaves of the mother plant, Coral Sparkle Trail. You can see a distinct red tint between the veins:
Image

Some of the tiny leaves seem to show a similar tint:

And some do not:
Image

Also some leaves have noticeable hairs while on others the hairs don't seem quite so pronounced:

Not quite sure which parent is contributing the hairiness.
Will be interesting to see how they develop happy03:

I wouldn't make any conclusions on the cotyledons. The primary leaves are quite different from the regular.

I'm sure you're right, Botan. But, I'm sorry, I can't help getting excited! :roll:

So this might be leaf damage or maybe, just maybe, it is showing indications of variegation inherited via Macs Just Jeff. Time will tell but for now I'm enjoying watching them develop and wondering ... happy03:

Unfortunately what I've read suggests you won't get mosaic variegation to come through in the first generation - and with most variegation it needs to be on the mother, too =( A few of mine have unusual leaf colouring which I think comes through from MJJ (a more olive colouration, many with red backs just like yours - which always translated from cotyledon to plant, for me) but not one of ~140 babies had variegation. I had a few which looked similar to your picture and got my hopes up but it didn't materialise into anything.

That said, if CST happens to have it in the background you never know... but so few people cross with mosaics, it seems =s

Your seedlings look like they're starting to really rocket up now, though ^_^ I'm sure however they turn out it's going to be interesting!

My first flower! happy02: happy02: happy02:

And here is a bud on another seedling that is about to bloom:

Image

You'll notice that even though the parent flowers were coral (Coral Sparkle Trail) and coral/red (Mac's Just Jeff), these are not. Which is interesting ... conf:

But it is early days - lots more seedlings may yet flower. happy03:

Wow Sandi, it's really interesting to see those flowers. On the last picure it looks like as it's having a green edge on the petals. Maybe if you try to cross the first generation again then you will see some red in the second generation. I don't remember which traits are dominant, but as I see blue is one of them :)

super:
Wow amazing! Pay attention to the first flowered plant it seems it has a potential to became a chimera as I see.
You grow them well, my lettuces are older than yours and they doesn't have even buds.

Oooh very cool ^__^ I am surprised to see that purple - I would guess it came from the coral sparkle trail as it has purple spots. Some fantasy plants have been known to change to being the whole colour of their spots or background so they must hold the potential for that colour in there! I totally agree with Botan that I'd keep an eye on that first one as it does look a little bit chimerical =D

Thanks for all your comments. Here are more pics:

Same plant as posted above - plant 67. It now has another flower

Image

The bud posted above has now opened and the plant (no 44) has half a dozen flowers. They have a sparkling quality to them which I guess they get from Coral Sparkle Trail.

Image

There are three or four others that are flowering and they are producing single purple flowers - I think most will look like this. Here's no 31

Florasandi, the first one is cool! Reminds a bit of Rob's Hoompty Doo. Does it have also a trailing habit?
Keep us informed! :)
