African Violet Sport Of Yukako F1

In the posts of October and November I discussed a sport of Yukako.  To review that blog,  just click here.   I have successfully produced a plant from the parent bloom stalk, using tissue culture techniques.  The resulting plant and flowers are true to the parent in both color, form and chimeraism.  The F1 flower stem is now in tissue culture to produce the F2.  If that is successful,  subsequently F3 will follow.

Then the plant will be register with the ASVA.   But we will see what happens, lets not get the cart before the horse.

    Thank you for your comment. Also if you go to the column on the right of the home page of this blog under “General Educational Information” and look the link List of African Violet Sports (and where they originated from) it will take you the AVSA list of all the sports generated and the original cultivar.
