Re: Re :HYB;Maternal Effect

So EUGENICS are not as simple as i had thought...

Thanks a lot to you all for making me realise i was close to making a big mistake by systematically discarting the weaks.., i had hoped to make my life easier...by letting them carry the responsability for their own end...and save a lot of room at the same time.

Not that easy, i now recon!

This is true. Some that plant the strongest throw the remaining  seedlings
away. It's a good practice to put the remaining seedlings back into pots.
This way all is not lost, if you've missed a good plant.

Rebloomers can often be spotted at transplant time. When I lift a seedling that has a lot more lateral/feeder roots I always place it at the first of
the row so I can keep track of it.  Almost without fail, it will  be the
strongest grower and often it reblooms. It can also be the ugliest. I've never had
one of these fail to grow.

When I have space to plant all of the seedlings, I group them within the bed according to strength. First the strong, then the middle class and finally the weak. One cross had so much PBF that I grouped according to the PBF, but
this was rare.
