I was wondering, if you cross pollinated flowers from a yellow and pink, what color would the offspring be? Would they be mixes of pink or yellow, variegated, or normal green plants?

I read the neon colors are recessive, but if you cross two recessive isn't it like 50% chance at neon offspring? I've pollinated a yellow to normal green and got all green and one variegated, but I don't own two neons to try this.

Interesting question, Keith. I'm no help, but I like that you're into experimenting with your plants.
