Patrick,

Is that a guppy that is yellow with red splashes, or a zinnia?

I know people who would have interest if it is the guppy.

Chuck,

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...
