    It's pretty nonetheless, Steve! Is the var. a genetic variation within a cross, such that some seedlings will be blue and some won't? Oh...and just how many seedlings do you have?

    I think it's stunning. Just how blue are they bred to be?

    As per normal seedlings do vary , sometimes quite wildly.
    This plant was bought from a nursery that does not specialise in Phal violacea's.
    I do have a seedling that has a very good chance of being blue.
    4 shots of blue in the parentage.
    Maybe in the spring/summer next year i will have a bloom similar to the link below.
