A couple questions...

Postby violetaholic » Fri Sep 14, 2007 3:48 am

When noting crosses, which is which?
For a Nerys X Cloud Nine cross would Cloud Nine be the parent plant?

And if I were to do a Cloud Nine X Nerys cross, the results would be different than a Nerys X Cloud Nine cross?

I read over the Flower Colour Genetics in Streps article by Dr. Smith. Does anyone know where I might find the book which he is referencing to? So far I have only been able to find many other references to this same information , and not the original work.

So many questions on only so many hours in a day. :on_pc:

Both would be parents. The first name is the seed parent and the second name is the pollen parent.

Results are always different when hybrids are involved, but in the case of crossing two species plants, the results should be the same.

Lori,

I believe the article is posted in the file section of the Yahoo strep list.

In general, it is believed that plant size and vigor are inherited from the seed parent and bloom characteristics primarily from the pollen parent.

With streps, it is not necessarily true. Crosses intended to produce small, with small blooms but many blooms on a stalk sometimes results in large plants with small blooms that aren't particularly floriferous.

But with the limited number of crosses that I've made (less than 100), I would say that variegated leaves are more likely to be inherited from the seed parent.
