Re: OT: A source for Chimeras?

Ploidy chimeras are common in plants treated with colchicine, part of the 
tissues being converted to tetraploidy, other parts remaining diploid. This 
is what caused my initial confusion.

I appreciate your explanation of how the term is binging used to describe a 
specific bloom color characteristic rather than genetic makeup of a cultivar. 
Some more research after your post indicates that such mutations usually 
revert to that of the parent plant.

How do chimeras, as this post is using the term, differ from broken color as 
this post uses that term?

Thanking yawl in advance cause soon as I learn the language I want have to 
type so much.
