Finally getting plants grown from my seeds to a size at which they are showing their characters. Thought I'd show some off.
Keep in mind these are some of the best out of hundreds of seedlings. If only they all turned out so nice...

Beautiful plants, mate. Roughly how old are they?

WOW !! That first one is very nice but I think my favourite is the last one what a beautiful plant, fantastic 5 rib form. Those plants are a credit to you.

How do you keep the flecking so bright white ? I believe I remember Hanazono saying if you water from the top with rain water this can keep them white ?

Thanks all.
The plants are around three years old and about 3cm or so.
I don't do anything too special for the flecks just keep them under cover to prevent them getting dusty or wet. Keep the mealies off cause their honey causes black sooty mold which stains. Every month or so I spray them with a jet of water to wash off mites and dust. I do it in the morning on a warm day so the water dries fast and does not use the flecks as a wick to bring water up from the soil. That will stain.
The five ribs are my faves too HN.
