Subject: Pollen Parent
No doubt you will get better informed responses, than mine, but let's see -- as you have already noted, the production of seedlings with streaks or variegation, is limited to the influnce of the pod parent alone.  That result will depend on some streakness in the pod parent.  The rest of the process, can be equally contributed to be ether or both parents.  At this point in your thinking, you would have to have a good idea , what chariteristics, were "dominant" in a given parent, and those that are recessive, in order to determine what crosses you might make ( or not make) If wavyness on the margins is dominant in both parents, you are very much more likely to get that in the offspring.

    Would any of you good Ladies and Gentlemen care to go into detail as to
what the pollen parent brings to the sporting process, that we have been
discussing? Most emphasis has been focused on the pod parent in the
discussion of streaks. Other than variegation what does the pollen influence
in the breeding? What are the roles of pod and pollen in petiole and scape
coloring, leaf vein and leaf color (i.e., producing a . 01 green or "black"
on the wheel)? What are the influences on inflorescence and scent?
