So you teach! While I was away this weekend, my used book, Genetics of
Flowering Plants by Verne Grant arrived in the mail. I am sure it would
be easier to ask questions on the Robin with you and Barry and Phil
answering in such a clear manner, but will take a stab at studying this.
A Happy Thought with rust coloring would be awesome. Can't you keep a
few plants in the house? I raise hundreds inside on shelves with four
foot lights - one warm and one cool bulb - with great success.
If you are ever up to it, I would love a little more detail on the color
in the leaves. If I understand correctly, that is why you introduce the
colored leaf last and use the seed parent if that is your goal.
Thanks for all the information.
