Your plants are beautiful!

Which is the time delay from one pic to the next one? Weeks? Months? Did you change the plants' position (exposure to sun) during these colour changes?

Thanks, Andrea.

sincerely we do not remember the time passed between a photo an another but true koh-yo tend to change body colour if there is strong sun toghether with big thermal excursion, spring and autumn are good sesons to see bright colours if they are in the greenhouse.
during summer even if there is a strong enlightment the colours are not the best and tend to turn to green.

Very very nice Mario! this should be both variegated and koh-yo.
Do you keep it in full sun or in shadow?

thanks

Hi C&D, THANKS for your appreciation. I agree with you. I will change it. That was the name given by the seed seller. I keep it in the best place with the ones that I like most. It has the best day's sun.

was the previous name only koh-yo?
btw it is possible to get variegated koh-yo from koh-yo plants.
I asked about the position because if it was only variegated it will burn in full sun.

thanks

Hi C&D, yes.  In summer, I slightly shade all my greenhouse plants with a light shade, cos our sun is too hot here.
