Re: streaked-green -steaked


>Streaked plants will stabilize

Yes Ben, they stabilize into either all mono colored or either regular 
edged or center variegation.  Streaked hostas may stay streaked for a 
long time, but they are basically unstable in the streaked condition. 
Streaked hostas are proabably a mosaic in the L1 and L2 layers, thats 
why they are streaked.

If variegated to mono to vaeriegated has nothing to do with 
transposible elements, then what causes these changes?

It's easy to explain all the things we see in hostas by transposible 
elements shifting into certain positions - the same sports show up 
over and over - you wouldn't get that in regular mutations.
