Castor Oil Plant

KeenOnGreenKeenOnGreen Posts: 1,756
My Castor Oil seedlings are coming on nicely, but they are completely green.  They are from the same batch of seed that I grew last year, which was the dark red variety (collected when I was in Corfu a few years ago).  Do the seedlings take a while to turn dark red? I seem to recall last year that the seedlings were dark red from the minute they germinated, but perhaps they took longer to turn colour than I remember.

    Mine often don't colour up until they are a bit larger.
    There are ashtrays of emulsion,
    for the fag ends of the aristocracy.

    Thanks @punkdoc I had a feeling I just needed to wait a bit longer.  The lockdown has made me impatient for everything to happen sooner, including dinner!
