Sport Of Granger Sugar Frost

Generally a very stable chimera African violet, Sugar frost produced this none exciting bloom.

8E Danse Macabre (Humako Oriental chimera sport) Or Danse de Déception

8E Danse Macabre which is a sport of Humako Oriental, produced another less attractive sport. This is more like Danse de Déception rather than Danse Macabre.

Photographic Record of Chimera Sports

This is a photographic record of some of the sports generated when I tissue culture chimera African violets.

O’Fortuna – A New Chimera African Violet Introduction

O’Fortuna is a new introduction and recently registered sport of Concord. AVSA Registration # 10806 D.Landek.

Sport of Shimai

  Received this image from Nikol Vodickova. This image is of a sport of Shimai. One of the nicer images I have seen (thank you Nikol). A similar sport of this nature I have also seen originating from Yukako. I suspect this is a chimera, but only a suspicion.

Sport of Concord F2 In Bloom

This is the first bloom of two plants that are the F2 generation of the sport of Concord and are blooming identical to the original sport and F1.

Mauna Loa Chimera African Violet Petal Count

Selecting Mauna Loa bloom stalks with blooms > 5 petals and then tissue culturing new plants from the bloom stalk appears to have produced a 6+ petal Mauna Loa.

Sport of Shimai Described

The flowers are white, ruffled and have considerable curvature and are never flat as depicted in the images below. The two top petals are a bit larger with a purple stripe with a green underlay of color. The other 3 petals are purple on a white petal with a very slight green undertone.

Sport Of Concord (second bloom)

As I indicated in the January 2015 post Link to that post, one of my Concords sported and produced a bloom that looked very similar to “The Alps”.   The plant is growing with a considerable degree of robustness such that a few months later it grew much larger and bloomed again.  As I pulled the […]

Rob’s Monkeyshines Sport

The below image is one of the many faces of  Rob’s Monkyeshines (AVSA Reg # 7893) blooms.  Click here to see my other blog post describing this blooming oddity.                             In the process of propagating some additional Monkyshine plants, one of the plants […]

Concord Sport

                The above image is a sport of Concord.  The bloom stalks that produced the above plant and below plant (true Concord) were taken from the same parent plant.  All the plants produced from the other bloom stalks of the parent look like the standard Concord depicted below.  This […]

Follow-up On Some Chimera African Violet Projects

For whatever reason there has been minimal blooming this month but a lot of growth with plantlets I produced from flower stalks from some “different” blooms. First I have the 7 petal Mauna Loa (Eyerdom) bloom. I produced a plantlet from that stalk. Not that I am expecting a plant that has 6 or 7 petal […]

Shimai Sport with Bilateral Blooms? (Part 2)

As a follow up from the last blog, the third pair of blooms opened.  The bilateral behavior has ceased.  The bloom pair and all the other blooms now forming are producing the dark stripe as an overlay to the green stripe producing a dark purple stripe on a white petal.   If this is stable or […]

Shimai Sport with Bilateral Blooms?

Shimai produced two flower stalks that demonstrated a bilateral bloom color. Is this a random event or a pattern?
