Lime Soda gr1 from Albany
« on: January 26, 2016, 12:11:25 »
Hi all
This was a offset I got as a gift a few years ago and its tagged as a gr1 gt yellow from Albany yellow line
Now the question is with what can I cross it to get more greener clivias?
It is sterile and only produce one seed for the past two years if I self pollinate it

Giovanni, the Albany line of yellows has been bred by Rodney Ellis in East London. He has bred clivias for many years and his latest Albany's are about F15! He has also dabbled with crossing them with Group 2 yellows. So, I would use a TKO, Hirao, or Charls Green, od something similar, and see if you get any green stems. Even if pigmented, I think the results could be very interesting.
