Don't get discouraged Linda. Combining two recessives into one plant
is tricky, but if you follow proceedures outlined you reduce crosses
needed. If you don't follow a plan, it just becomes a crap shoot.
With a lot of recessives lurking around, you could have increaed
With what you are doing, you have a great chance to select appropriate
F1 seedlings. thoise that bloom earliest, have best number of increases
and having lower leaf count for initiating bloom are all positive
forward going triats for rebloom. Select best F1 and you are well on

Thanks for the discussion about F1, F2 & probabilities of getting
several recessives combined in one plant.
Thinking out loud....
If we "pretend" that "summer" rebloom is just one recessive gene
(ignoring all the other growth habits that have to be there), then
combining "summer" rebloom with interesting/attractive color patterns
with better form would be the same problem as with the flatties.
My plan has been to cross two F1s from different genetic lines, trying
to focus on improved form in the F1s. But, from what you've posted,
Chuck, if neither F1 "summer" blooms here, the probability of
realistically getting <anything> that summer blooms might drop to near
zero here in the F2s. Since I'm also insisting on super survival genes.
However, crossing the "F2"'s from that cross back to the original
reblooming parent (using the rebloomer as pod parent) would improve the
odds back to a more reasonable level.
I have a few F1 X F1 with different modern formed on one side, same
summer bloom parent on the other; a few F1 x F1 sib crosses, only one
seedling bloomed so far; and a few F1 crossed back to the "summer"
blooming pod parent, none bloomed so far.
I knew this project was a long shot, going to take a long time and a
<lot> of seedlings, plus a lot more good daubing seasons than I'm
to get here.
I think I'll delete your post, Chuck. Too discouraging to see the
actual probabilities! ;-(
