>>I noticed that in my pot of seedlings, all of them have bright grass green
leaves, while one of them has very, very dark, almost "black" leaves. Could
this be the start of a new variety, or have you guys seen this before? 

Hard to say at this point.  Some of my Amaryllis belladonna hybrids have
darker leaves, and some in particular have very dark edges on the leaves as
they first sprout.  Wait a while and see if they turn green as they grow.
If they stay black all season, I think you have something different.
