   Genes act by producing enzymes and proteins that have further effects. So
more of a biological chemical, can result in increased effect.

 Such as multiple dosages of dominant amoena? resulting in narrower bands of

 Also you have the need for multiple dosage of dominant reduction of
anthocyanin gene ("I") to reduce amount of anthocyanin, when Ae is present. As
witness purple iris? , almost always, when crossing a purple aphylla x any TB
cultivar with I gene.

 As to need for vernalization being turned off, it would bassically seem that
the venalization genes? are recessive and need to be in compatible? sets. So
what chemical is being produced in this situation, may be in the research,
but? it never registed with? me as I didn't seem to have any importance.
Basically, what is happening is that the? bloom repressor is being turned off.
A double negative, so to speak.

 The fatalility of the black gene in Siamese fighting fish seems to be related
to? the sex genes, x & y.

 With all rebloomers, you need bud set, in order to get rebloom. without this,
the genetics are not able to function.

 Keeping track of your temperatures is a good idea. Look for min temp in
15-20C range( 59-70F aprox) for 6 nights in row after plant reeaches

 Until you get this, you are unable to evaluate rebloom potential. Isuspect
that we could get some cultivars that may be triggered with either fewer days
or? temperatures outside this range. Finding these would be a real step
forward. Bu you won't find them unles you can identify them. You can only fo
that if? you keep track of temperatures and bloom.

 It would apear that Queen Dorathy? is one that falls outside this criteria. I
have had it rebloom with 3 days in temperature range, but it may have
responded to a lower temperature.

     Thanks Chuck.?
  Can you think of any instances where a dominant gene in multiple doses  has
some kind of amplifying effect?  In other words where it has the  opposite
effect of being lethal?  I guess it wouldn't be considered a  true dominant in
that case.?
  Any thoughts on the chemistry of what's going on when the cycle gene is
off?  Is any of that chemistry reversible, or could it be speeded up by  an
extra gene set?  Ok, this is getting way off the track - sorry.?
  It's just frustrating trying to interpret results since rebloom here is  so
dependent on year to year seasonal weather variations as well as  general
climate, so that even "dominant" genes can't be seen half the  time (or more,
or less).  Seems like a plant should have a hard time  figuring out how to
grow at all with four sets of genes that don't agree  with each other.  ;-)?
  Interesting example about the fish - does the color gene cause death or  is
it another gene linked with it??
  &lt;I don't know of any situation of where a dominant gene is no longer?
  functioning when it is in multiple dosages, unless it is a lethal gene in?
  multiple dosages. Those exist, and the plant or animal just dies. One
  of this is black Siamese fighting fish. Males with two dosages of black
  Perhaps someone else knows of a situation where a dominant gene is  turned
  in multiple dosages, but I can't think of any off hand.&gt;?
