You sure do stay busy. I've enjoyed looking at your seedlings. Many
look very promising. Congratulations! I'm glad to see you are still
getting rebloomers among your seedlings.
One of the main problems with breeding for IB's has been stabilizing
the class. You are more or less starting from ground zero with your TB
& SDB crosses. When you have time, would you discuss this and give us
an idea about the overall proportion--height, branching, and bloom
size. Can you calculate the percentage that fall into the proper range
at this point?
You are making crosses both ways. Does one direction seem to give the
proper sizes better than the other? Are you seeing better branching
from the TB as pod parent?
I especially like the Midsummer Night's Dream X Romantic Evening. Just
love those dark ones.
Again, lovely seedlings!

So glad it's done! it was a lot of work to edit them all!
And when uploading on Flickr, they were all upside down so i had to
rotate them all one by one.......except the ones taken from
they will do in any position!
Now i'm trying to sort the seeds i won't plant (cannot decently plant
the 1000pods!)....so i can put them on offer like last year...
Should be coming soon!
But i warn you, no TB X TB cross, only medians!
The summer bloom is finished :

The summer was quite dry, and i didn't water much so the autumn rebloom
should be small.
Platinum and Yours Free are in bloom, Reincarnation should open soon.
I will keep track, don't worry!

Thanks so much for sharing these with us, Loic. A <lot> of work to get
them all out there for us to see. A lot to learn from them - one
picture is worth a lot.
Now to add whole plant shots so we can see how they grow ;-)
Has fall bloom begun for you yet?
