Tetraploid Conversions
Posted on Jun 29, 2015 2:05 PM

I've collected a few Tet Conversions lately.
I only wish that I would of gotten some with much better pollen and pod setting...
Before buying some high dollar conversions for hybridizing you should read up about how fertile they are...

Tetra Elfin Etching, I can set pods on it but have used its pollen dozens of times no pods...

Tetra Texas Kaleidoscope, I used its pollen last year more heavily than any other flower, I set pods on almost every one I tried. When it was time time to harvest pods, I had about 5 pods from Ttk pollen. 90% of them aborted...

Tetra Super Fancy Face, I also used this one a ton, I ended up with 2 total pods from sff pollen.

Tetra Dallas Star. Haven't gotten any pods on itself yet but its pollen works good.

I hope others on ATP will make notes about things like this and post them.

But look at this,meh second bloom and no pattern. 😒

And yet another bloom with no pattern. The first bloom was better than all the rest.

Now to some registered ones...

Stenciled Di Fresco, first bloom. Fairly good pattern!

Second bloom.
Thumb of 2015-06-29/kidfishing/1314f9
Third bloom
Thumb of 2015-06-29/kidfishing/8ad7fb
Fourth and fifth, with a decent pattern.

Another goal in my hybridizing is a red pattern or a red flower with a pattern, so I have been using Stenciled Di Fresco on all my eyed and eyes and watermarks..

Daylily Seedling Comparison
Posted on Jun 7, 2015 3:12 PM

In this blog post I wil show you how siblings vary.
All these daylilies have the same parents, some of these are ugly and some are nice, some have a pattern and some don't. It's fun to see what you can get with daylily seedlings.
All these are Not Guilty X Ripples & Reflections
