As has been demonstrated repeatedly through out this blog, a cross between two Chimera African violets does not produce chimera African violet seeds or offspring. But it can produce some interesting outcomes. What I have done in this experiment is use a chimera African violet as the pollen plant and a non-chimera African violet as the seed parent. Both have very large blooms.
In less the 7 days it became obvious that the cross took and a seed pod started to form. This is the seed pod after 3 weeks (below). In total there are five seed pods from this cross developing. I think that will be more then enough to produce some interesting outcomes. As I have in the past, I will photograph the progeny of this cross as they bloom. I may have some extra seed available should anyone be interested in trying it themselves, as long as you promise to photograph the outcomes so it can be posted on this blog.
