HYB: 201 Homework

In the absence of  "Wait for me!" cries...

I'm assuming you've now charted =

SOSTENIQUE, printed out my chart
of TRIBE OF JUDAH for reference,
and made your seedling predictions.

You may have even "cheated" and
found descriptions of offspring in
the R&I booklets.  [But I prefer the term  =

"creative use of resources".]

Here are brief descriptions of the four
introductions from the cross:

S. very pale blue
F. blue-violet with large deep purple
B. yellow w/ violet base.

S. pearl grey
F. apricot-buff with plum-red wash
and oxblood-red signal.
B. yellow

S. pewter, with gold midrib & veining
F. tan, rust & brown, with orange-on-
ivory veining around beard and red-
brown signal.
B. yellow

S. pinkish white
F. reddish-violet with rust-on-white
veining on inner half.
B.  yellow gold

O.K.  How many did you predict? =

Don't be alarmed if none of these
combinations were on your list.
This particular cross held some
surprises for me, too.  That's why
I chose it as our real-life example.

You may want to chart all four, or
you may get by with charting only the =

features you weren't able to predict.

The question is:  What can you learn
about the parents from the information
about their offspring?

HINT:  Grey and pewter were not =

included on Tom's chart, or on mine, =

but grey seems to be a  type of
anthocyanidin and pewter results from
combining it with a yellowish-ivory base.

More seedling descriptions will follow, =

but this much should entertain you for
a while....
