Superkabuto cristata
« on: Tuesday, 07 August 2012 - 20:20:33 »
I made this cristata from seed in 2009, today it flowered for the first time.

How is the chance of getting cristata's from the seeds of this plant? I pollinated it with two "normal" v-types.

i have very little experience, but i think cristata trait is poorly heritable...

It's going back a few years ago now but I once read a paper published in the 70's that studied heritability of fasciation in Echinocereus riechenbachii. It found that crests are more likely from crested parents. I think Ritter was one of the authors.
In my own experience I did a Copiapoa (tenuissimaXmillicula)hybrid because it produced nice veriegates. In the second year I grew out about a hundred seedlings trying to isolate bright coloured variegates. About 8 plants from that cross went crested and one is a monstrose crest. I even got a variegate crest so I was happy!

This Superkabuto crest I obtained 2years ago. Formerly it was on pereskiopsis but now I regrafted it on Myrtilo.
