Potential 4n Sogo Kaiulani

Post by TxRobNLA » Mon Sep 08, 2014 5:26 pm

So I got ready to replate out some small colchicine treated seedlings last night from a flask that contained one giant seedling...

This is what I found.

Its sitting in the greenhouse potted up now. Hopefully the bud does not blast. I was tempted to leave it in the flask until it opened. But wanted to give it a chance to get established before the weather starts to cool off.

WOW that sounds really good Rob.
Is that me or you can already see some dark pigments in that bud?
Fingers crossed

Yep, the bud has some nice dark color. This was from a selfing of 'Joy'. So it should be a nice dark one. Hopefully the form will also be good.

Bet this will be the fastest flask to flowering. LOL

Good job, Rob. That looks and sounds promising. Hope your bud does not blast. Maybe you take that spike and stem it!

Well, this is going to be the fastest from flask to bloom I've ever had. :D

No idea from this flower if this is a converted tetraploid, so this one is going to have to have a count before I even guess. Would have been nice if it had of been obvious. But this flower may change drastically once the plant is established. I still may use this pollen for breeding and gamble that this is a tetraploid given what it is between now and getting a confirmed chromosome count.

The way the plant grew in the lab, I'll put money on it being a tetraploid. The flower just does not look like it.

I need to read this second more often.

That is super nice. I wish I could make my regular SK's happier.

Yeah, I lost my 2n Sogo Kaiulani unfortunately. Struggled to keep it going for a long time. Luckily this 4n one has been a strong grower. It has not bloomed since the original bloom, so I'm looking forward to seeing what it is going to do on a larger plant.

I have about 5 or 6 more potential 4ns in the lab that have grown MUCH slower. I'm going to grow them out to see what they do, but they not be worth keeping. Just glad I got one good one.
