 a hexaploid?
some of the problems with other than usual polyploid gene numbers include:
Room in the nucleus for the chromosomes, and the problems involved with the 
apparatus involved in multiplication and division during cellular division.

Think of the chromosomes as balloons with long strings-the more balloons you 
have the more likely you are going to get them tangled up.  So that when you 
try to divvied your balloons into two diffrent sets, you cannot because they 
are all messed up-this happens in cells to.

Also odd pairings do not replicate or express then selves very well so that 
sets made of 3 or 5 become confusing. 

Life is such a wonder and the more we learn about cells the more complicated 
they become.
