nice graftings!
According to our experience there are variegated myrio plants, koh-yo plants and koh-yo variegated plants.
Variegated plants usually do not like a lot sunlight, but koh-yo variegata like sun a lot and they do not burn themself if exposed to full sun.

Hello!! Beautiful plants!!
I see you graft very small seedlings and you soon start to see kikko patterns.
How do you select the ones that will show best kikko form?
I sowed many many seeds from kikko plants from my own collection and now I've so many seedlings and I don't know how to choose the better ones because none of them shows kikko marks (about 2 months old).

Thank you!!

hello! there is no a specific way to select the seedlings, you can graft a part of them and hope some of them will show good kikko signs.
remember that on peresk they show earlier kikko signs but it's possible the genetic is not so stable, and so when you put the plant on another stock it loses the kikko signs. I suggest you to select the stronger ones to be grafted, you can also select some strange ones to see how they develop, but only for that reason.

        I have been trying to create this beautiful plant and  I assume that you cross
   a variegated myrio. nudum x kikko nudum. Would this be correct? I think why I
   I haven't been successful is because it takes many seeds to be sown like any
   other hybridizing.? The mother should be the kikko also?

hello! we have not big experience with variegata plants because in the past we did more crossing between kikko koh-yo nudum plants and not a lot with variegated ones. We'll let you know the results from the plant in the picture in the near future. but if both of parents are kikko it will be better, than I do not know if the % of variegated plants changes if only the mother or the father is variegated.

          So, in alot of the photos I can tell the koh-yo plants from the varegated genetics. The koh-yo plants are colored
  more pink or light green or an off yellow.
          I've not grown koh-yos before but have seen many nice plants in photos, and find it interesting that there are
  variegated koh-yos.
          To make variegated kikkos you cross with koh-yos, and what percentage of nice plants show up?
  All the pictures posted of variegated kikkos are spectacular. Especially the multicostatum! Magnificent!
