You'll get various combinations of genes from both parents. Since you don't know the exact genetic heritage of the parents, no telling what you might get.

The red one looks like some Lobivia hybrid so you can expect all variety of white- pink- red forms from those seeds. And every pot may contain several hundred or thousand seeds.
