    So i'm thinking about germinating each of the A. palmatum varieties seeds separated (not mixing them up) that i've collected thia year. I was wondering if that's a bad idea? What is it that others do?

    I want to keep up with what seedlings come from what cultivar. Also, whats the chance of a variegated palmatum offspring being variegated, dwarf being dwarf, etc? How often do genetics and traits from the parent plant shows and how long would it take to see them.

    Im aware of the seedling showing variation but will some of the seedling convert to being basic green leaf traits? Im planning on using a lot of them for to practice grafting in the up coming years. Years, because of the slow growth rate here in the Northeast of the US.

    Thanks for any info given!
