There are transposons operating with both anthocyanin and with cartenoid pigments. In some plicata BC. Some times both are controlled at the same time. Bewilderbeast and Tiger Honey are examples of this This may be an explanation of the purple streaks on some of the BC of plicata origin. There are some such as Broken Dreams that are BC only in cartenoid pigment. with cartenoid pigments there is more likely hood of there being chimera plants with two types of genetic tissues being present. this is usually the case with variagated foliage. It can also happen in flowers, separate and different from transposon BC.In these cases patches are usually larger and very oddly shaped.
