Re: RE: Hybridizing- Plicata etc.


Sounds like you are having fun!  Do you by any chance self your ugly ducklings
to bring out hidden recessives?

Just wanted to say that I could have sworn someone stated at the time RAR was
introduced that it was a new pattern and not of plicata lineage. So far, I
have not heard of anyone achieving plicatas from RAR.  Of course, all that
really means is that I have not HEARD of it happening... I wonder what you'd
get out of selfing RAR.

I have just collected a pod with 45 seeds of Ghio's luminata called RETURN TO
SENDER crossed with Tasco's BROADBAND.  I am really looking forward to the
results of this cross!  I am hoping for reblooming luminatas/plicatas with
modern form.  Both already grow great for me and are vigorous.

Right now however, the only thing I have available to cross are my
fancy-tailed guppies and the F2 seedlings of my Zinnia cross made a couple
years ago.  I got one that is a yellow with red splashes, interesting...

  Luminatas are a form of plicata as are glaciatas and lumi-plics. Keith
posted a good article on this awhile back, it's worth checking out.

  I've always considered Ring Around Rosie a plicata and this year a cross of
Ruby Eruption X Ring Around Rosie bloomed and everthing that bloomed was a RE
look alike (red on yellow plicata) in IB height, with good bud count.
  If anyone has results of RAR  time plicata that gave anything other then
plicata I would be interested in hearing about it.

  I often use carriers. That is crossing two differnt colour types and taking
the best of the offpring to pull back what I want. Right now I have a not so
pretty off yellow with black beards from a cross of a blue bearded pink with a
blue bearded white, that I've been crossing onto blue bearded pinks to get the
pink back. Some of these ugly ducklings can produce good babies.
