Hi everyone!
Just a thought about proliferations, I don't know if it was discussed before. If so, my apologizes since now.
I see a lot of proliferations on young seedlings, but they are crosses among quite recent cultivars. The "older" cultivars seems not so keen on producing proliferations. Did some of you noticed the same thing?
Like it is a new capability acquired in recent times.
What do you think? Should I stay less under the sun and avoid cooking my brain?

A good third of my cultivars are historic spiders and unusual forms. Proliferations are quite common on them. So common, I stopped saving them many years ago.
I have found that in my garden, diploids tend to make many more prolifs than tets.

Thanks Judy, that's just the opposite that happens in my garden! I have to say that I don't have really many cultivars.

I have read that prolif's are more common on seedlings than on mature plants, and that has been my experience. Last year my first cross bloomed for the first time, and one plant had two prolif's on one scape. A second had one. Among all my other plants, I have seen only two prolif's total.
