It differs from DS-Little Arctic Foxes by redder shade and more neat rosette.
Red fantasy is on dark burgundy background.

I will propagate it."

Pavel" Picture below compares DS-881 with DS-Little Furry Arctic Fox 1 (left) and DS-Little Furry Arctic Fox 2 (right)"

Foxes lose in terms of quality of rosette, flower stalks, blossom size and color.

"SUPER! I like all red flower hue, brightness, accurate rosette flower stalks are wonderful!! I'm so glad. that took both DS-889 and DS-950. Definitely will long remain in my collection Pasha, thank you very much!!
It is not fair that ‘Critters’ have names, but DS-881, which outperforms them, does not. Pavel, give it a name, please”

I want it! :D

One question... Does it appear to be more stable than Furry?

No, Karen, unfortunately not. 50-50% as Furry. This is Pavel's data. For some reason for me both Furry and Plushy have much less reverse sports. However, The Red and The Black is more difficult. But once it flower true it continues true for me.

I have better luck with Plushy remaining true than with Furry. Of leaves I have out down with Furry, I haven't gotten a true baby yet. I keep trying though, because I love it so much. That is why I am hopeful for some of his newer fantasy streps that resemble Furry.

Karen, I can guess what happens. I've never had problems with Furry, Plushy or Night Lights. But sometime they can have a leaf that produce only background color. I usually remove that leaf and the rest will continue to produce leaves with true color flowers. If you took that kind of leavf for propagation it will produce only "sports." Do you still have a mother plants? If not, please email me directly and we will arrange "true" leaf package:-))
