Just curious if anyone has ever grown naturally pigmented ( i have "nankeen" and "erlene's green" ) organic cotton seeds? I can't wait to try this out but would love some pointers on this seed. Thanks so much!!

Doesn't cotton take like more days to ripen,
the we have summer time up here???? [dunno] [dunno] [dunno]

I've heard the flower is a pretty white.

Do you grow the cotton just for the flower??? Or do you harvest the cotton?

HONESTLY, I'M JUST REALLY CURIOUS AS TO WHAT GREEN AND COPPER COTTON WOULD LOOK LIKE. I DON'T PLAN ON HARVESTING A LARGE QUANITY, IM THINKING MORE LIKE 3 OR FOUR PLANTS OF EACH... FROM WHAT I READ (GLANCED AT ACTUALLY- I BETTER GO BACK AND REALLY READ IT!) THERE WOULD BE ENOUGH TIME HERE IN THE MIDWEST FOR IT TO GO TO SEED... FROM WHAT I'VE SEEN, THE FLOWERS ARE BEAUTIFUL ON THESE DIFFERENT VARIETIES OF COTTON, SO THAT MAKES IT EVEN INTERESTING!!

I have cotton growing here in Pennsylvania right now.......i did it last year also.. It is not colored, but white.....Pick the seeds out of the cotton ball and seed like any other seed......I will take a photo later.

yes it needs so many days, mine didnt have long enough but i have a gallon of balls direct from Arkansas with seeds galore.. I was told colored cotton is know to be a bad type, not good?//

HI THERE...STARTED MINE TODAY. WHY THE HECK WOULD COLORED COTTON SEEDS BE BAD?! WHATS BAD ABOUT THEM? THAT IS INTERESTING, PLEASE ELABORATE ON THAT IF POSSIBLE.... I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT WILL COME OF THE SEEDS!!
DAN, WE'LL HAVE TO COMPARE NOTES IN THE COMING WEEKS. DID YOU START YOURS INDOORS OR OUTSIDE? I WENT HEADFIRST IN THE GROUND.

How did all you people come out on your cotton?
I have some pure white cotton coming up and will be potted in large pots so they can be moved in and out weather permitting.
I will put a couple snaps of last years crop on my flower site later today.

I have cotton fields all around me that have already been harvested for this year. Only white though. How boring.
