Omigosh -- what fun. I don't do any breeding -- but I can hardly wait to see what you'all produce with these crosses. I hope you'll post pictures, Anita!!
Every day is a second chance. Every day is precious time.

Does 'Snap it Up' carry plicata genes? Otherwise why the cross to a luminata? I can't wait to see Gary's seedlings on the market.

Lucy - Gary's Seedling is dynamic but from what I hear from Dee Snap it up has body many of the SDB plic lack. Although it is not as noticeable in this pic Snap it up and the seedling both have central Glow. Yellow in the seedling, Dark violet in Snap it up. Also the seedling lacks a beard and I like the color of snap it up as well as the color. Multi color beard is often found of TBs not so much on SDB, Just a test. These are crosses I like to do, that there looks like no advantage to the cross

i.e.
Thumb of 2012-09-02/avmoran/009009 X Thumb of 2012-09-02/avmoran/d1b245

Minidragon (SDB) X Candy Corn (SDB) Both selfs
I was actually trying for a brown but got much better


Thumb of 2012-09-02/avmoran/cc697f and Thumb of 2012-09-02/avmoran/155dee

Both MDBs both total different from parents'

Sass Try a few crosses yourself. You could start with SDBs which don't take up much space.

I was wondering Anita. Our dry conditions are not doing well for the new plants including 'Snap It UP'. Always something. Flower looks interesting for amoenas, although perhaps not for my red project. & it looks clear which is great because its parent 'Pele' showed virus here.
