I just realized I can't work out the Punnett square as I don't know 
the genotype of pod parent of CC. Could you give a description of it? 
What crosses have you used with Soft Air? Then I could do a Punnett 
square. They don't take too long once you get the hang of it. Genotype 
(how it is composed genetically) is not always the same as phenotype ( 
how it looks. Thus when I'm describing an iris as eg: a luminata, it 
is because it is genotype luminata ie: plu plu pla pla, that is two 
luminata genes and two glaciata genes.
I can't see the plic haft markings with Soft Air in the posted photo. 
Are they definatly violet (anthocyanin) or could they be the olive 
veining that I seem to get with the "Ring" factor?
