Supposed 'leaky genes' are back again

Recommended Posts

These two antho free hybrids once again showing these very faint red veins. This is supposed to be due to 'leaky genes', or perhaps another mechanism allowing a tiny bit of pigment to appear.

anyone else seeing this?

Yes Ada, the suggestion is thta ot goes away with maturity, but so far it has been present in a steady way over at least 3 years. Strange as it does not seem to occur in the species, only in hybrids.

I can see veins in some AF pups but Don,t  know if they are red or not.Being red / green colourblind is no help.I have seen veins in AF plants that have purps and rubra in their parents,but can,t say the same for other AF hybrids,yet. Maybe I just grew the wrong seeds!
