Last week I repotted my charlesworthii ('Half & Half' x 'Hidden Surprise'). The parent plants were both alba carriers, hense their names.

I got 25 total plants from the compot. There were three maybe four (as far as I can tell by Sam's instructions) albas in there. One seedling was found without roots and is in intensive care to see if I can get some to pop out. I dipped the nub in rooting hormone and am trying to keep it in a higher humidity.

Here are some pics:

First is the compot, second the resulting repot, third is a closeup of the difference between normal and alba charlesworthii. Normal charles have the typical spotting and the albas do not.

Thanks for the photographs! Interesting to see the difference!

Also, this post reminds me that I need this species.

I certainly hope the ICU plant makes it because it is one that I think may be an alba plant.

Keep me in mind in a few months when you are ready and maybe we can work out something to each of our benefit!!! :)
