Thanks!
They are between 50-65mm, the fourth one is around 80mm. All of them are about five to six years old.
They came from Koehres seeds, the original seedlings didn't show the v but when I crossed the plants from the Koehres seeds together their children showed v about one in twenty.
I am guessing the original seed was a cross between v-type and normal super kabuto, the occurrence of v type in the second generation suggests that the v-type gene is recessive.
Here is a strange v-type, the v has little wool and a deep groove, I can't decide if this is nice or ugly!

Beautiful plants, the V marked form, in my opinion, is the most fascinating among all the SK.

Can I help you to decide Simon? Also the last one is simply beautiful!
Andrea.

Simon, great job, amazing plants. I admire your perseverance

I have sowed some v type from Kohres also. Only one showed V-type characters and because of that I only keeped that plant. I also have some seeds to sow this month.

How do you manage to keep them so clean? Mine are full of dirt, it gets up by capillarity no matter if I water from the bottom or top.

Hi Andrea, Thank You.
Hi Lucian, I use a layer of the red scoria(lava rock) as the top dressing. It prevents soil splashing on the plants, it also dries out quickly if you water in the morning on a hot day so the capillary action is less of a problem. I think that watering around the plants rather than on top of them and trying to only 3/4 wet the soil so it isn't saturated helps with preventing capillary action. But even doing all this some plants still get dirty because the wool acts as a wick, it is most of a problem on smaller plants, once they are around 4-5 cm it doesn't happen so much.
