kousougyoku

These are two specimen of an utterly beautiful fulleri cultivar called 'Kousougyoku' (jp. 紅窓玉) from Y. Shimada. Seing it on pictures before I couldn't believe it's a julii at all. The colors and patterns are just so unusual and mesmerising. I also have 'Kousougyoku' seeds but from another source. Will they turn out anything like these beauties, I wonder.

This one looks like a starry sky. I think I can see the Great and the Little Bear, can you? :)
