Transposable elements

I am quit willing to explain everything to my ability. Transposable 
elements are small pieces of DNA that can jump That way they cause 
sometimes mutations Some plants seem to have up to 30% of their DNA 
composed of Tranposable elements The fact is, that these are usually 
very, very  stable Only rareley one finds one that is unstable ( 
Mclintock). The big question is not or we have Trans El in Hosta 
I am sure they are there the question is have we unstable Trans El 
in Hosta,. I dont know. Ttransposable elements, even if they make a 
rare jump, are very stable So any mutation they cause is inherited 
the mendelian way that is to say both via eggs and pollen. So plants 
like Spilt Milk that dont inherit in a mendelian fashion are most 
likely not caused by Trans Elements.
