R. blanda seedligns look anemic...

I have germinations of 2 seeds of R. blanda x a gallica, most likely ‘Tuscany’. But they look very anemic, and want to know if this is something R. blanda does. This was a cross I made over a year ago on my then new blanda plant with stored pollen that had lost their original label.


If I remember correctly, blanda is dipliod and the gallicas are tetraploid. If so, the problem could be because you have triploid seedlings. Also, I’ve found that wide crosses often tend to have a large number of weak seedlings. Good luck.
