> Hosta Friends,
> About a week or so ago, someone wrote a post describing his variegated

> mechanisms involved in growth and origin of such seedlings.Since no one

> to retrieve it. I will try to respond without this specific reference.
>  Both vareigated seedlings and sports are controlled by specific
> mechanisms which have been described many times in hosta-open  posts
> over time. It is unfortunate that this person is not familiar with the
> comprehensive discussion which took place in February and March of 2001.
> More than 50 people were involved in this discussion on Origin of Sports
> which produced more than 300 pages of discussion text. The processes
> responsible for variegation in seedlings and chimeral sports in hostas
> are similar or identical. I refer the inquirer to the two posts
> prepared summarizing the discussion.
> These two posts were combined into one summary which was prepared for
> publication in the Fall Edition of the Hosta Journal. Unfortunately,
> this potential article was not included in the Fall Edition for reasons

> types of sports and variegated seedlings in hostas. If publication is
> not anticipated, then other media  need to be sought to widely
