Mary Sue,

I can't offer an answer but have a similar experience.  Three years ago all
my seedlings of Corydalis ornata were white or very pale yellow, even though
growing in good light.  They germinated next to other Corydalis species
which behaved perfectly.  The ornata did not go on to make bulbs, they just
hung around a few weeks then faded away.  I guess it must be genetic in this
case as there were no environmental factors that could account for it.
