To do peel, cut lightly with scalpel sharp edge, such as razor blade etc., at an angle, grasp and pull. Takes a bit of practice. Super fine dissecting tweezers help.

About 400x or 600x will do it nicely 1000x gives great detail.

Thanks Chuck. Interesting that there could still be some anthocyanin in
petals "without" the genes for anthocyanin in the petals.  So the
pigment production reactions would be stopped earlier for the little Ae
thingies & beards than the step that makes it go away in the petals?

Could you point me to a source of info, maybe with photos? on how to do
the 'peel' that you've described for looking for Ae?
