Any plants that produce incresaes early and have fast growth on increases have
good potential in rebloom crosses.

Don't think this is directly connected to any specific rebloom genetics, but
are excellent secondary characheristics to enhance  rebloom potential.

Having new increases blooming with  mother fan is an interesting phenomenon.
May be related to temperature/growing conditions rather then anything else.

Thanks again, Chuck.

Esp for taking time during your bloom season!

So I wonder what happens if we combine those growth & rebloom genetics (i.e.,
need for vernalization or 5 months) with genes for new fans produced in fall
that grow over the winter enough and are vernalized enough to bloom shortly
after/simultaneously with the fan "born" the prior spring/summer that is the
main spring bloom.

Or are those the same rebloom genetics combined with different maturity

Could we possibly hope that they would think they had missed winter after a
shorter time period?

I have some seedlings like that (produce bloom on younger fans simultaneous
with older fans), including the one I think will be my first introduction.

If your surmise that the CA/5 month/rebloom genes are dominant (when all the
other necessary growth/temperature etc genes are present), & if the (what
shall we call it - multiples?) are the same genes but more impatient, that
would be nice.  Esp if I could get some higher threshold temperature bud set

I have some of the 'multiple' seedling in a pot - will try watering twice a
day (when I can remember to do it) with cold water, shade during the hottest
part of the day and fertilizing like crazy & see what happens.  Bury the pot
in some kind of insulating mulch.

It may not be a good subject - will have to check, but as I recall, it has a
high leaf blade count, so probably isn't going to be all that fast maturing.
