Re: First year of hybridizing

I have my first germination! Its an open pollinated double knockout seedling. It was part of my practice batch to see if I can germinate things successfully. Its cute and small. I am not sure if it's a selfing since nearly no hips form on the dkos. I've put some diploid pollen on the dko this year a...

Re: First year of hybridizing

I would really appreciate the pollen, I want to pollinate some of my mosses with it, im unsure when they will bloom though. They just came out of dormancy recently, so I can imagine that they may be blooming in June.

Re: First year of hybridizing

Also, this may be a strange request, but would it be possible to get some pollen from a woodsii and/or a pulverulenta from someone on here if I wanted to do some test crosses?

Re: First year of hybridizing

I looked at dark desire and I think it would probably work well! I appreciate the recommendation. The fragrance sounds like its very different/unique. I think I would replace black bacarra with that one. I may keep ink spots because I like the vigor and it's pretty disease resistant as well. I may b...

Re: First year of hybridizing

In this case, I like the hybrid tea look, but I have a lot of varying goals. I would like my dark roses to have the hybrid tea form. The qualities most important to me are fragrance and disease resistance. I live in south carolina, so avoiding black spot prone plants would be best. I'll have to meet...

Re: First year of hybridizing

Thanks for the advice, this helps a lot! I collected some pollen already and its in the freezer while I wait for the rest of my roses to catch up and start blooming. I also feel kinda sad about some rose choices I made. I started buying things last year before I did research and started looking on h...

First year of hybridizing

Hi y'all, I've introduced myself before, but im newer to the forum and this is the first year I am able to do any hybridization. Last year was more of a plant establishment year. I am currently practicing stratification with some open pollinated seeds and hope to get some to germination soon! I beli...

It occurs to me... Would drying and freezing clean pollen kill anything that might be on such?
From a biology perspective, freeze drying is a great way to preserve microorganisms, I imagine that freeze drying wouldn't be a very effective way of eliminating plant pathogens.

Re: Can Alba Maxima cross with diploids to create tetraploids?

As a second question related to this, does recombination happen during meiosis between the 4 constant chromosomes and the other chromosomes that separate into the pollen? Or does no recombination happen between those chromosomes? I couldn't find any literature on this.

Re: Therapeutic benefits of roses

Thanks! I'll have a look at all of these resources. I am currently rotating in a drug discovery lab and may turn this topic into my dissertation. Would love to look at the active compounds and determine the effectiveness of individual compounds on certain ailments. I feel like doing something with r...

Therapeutic benefits of roses

Hi yall, I'm new to the forum and am based in South carolina. I am really interested to do some breeding with medicinal applications in mind. So if you know of any good articles or information - even if it's anecdotal, I would appreciate it. I also wanted to share a review paper that I found that ta...

Re: What can be done to improve forum engagement?

I am just starting off and have been working on establishing a breeding stock this year. I guess I have a couple of goals as far as breeding goes for sure, but I also want to leave room for happy happenstance. So I'll probably be a little engaged with this throughout time. I am getting my PhD in bio...
