Again, your explanation is too simple. First we are only
interested in what
leads to an unstable meristem, the other cells are
unimportant. We have
been informed by Jim H. that the meristem forms
early in cell division, so
what ever happens, it must happen early. Now
a streaked plant has two types
of cells, a white cell and a green one.
The egg comes from only one cell, a
white one or a green one (from the
streaked maternal parent). So where are
the two types of chloroplasts
to randomly sort into daughter cells? Streaks
would imply a continuous
process of sorting, How does this happen?
