Monday's Read - Andrew Gibson breeding results
« on: March 13, 2016, 19:10:13 »

Breeding results using Andrew Gibson

I believe that the most unusual colours are still to come from crosses made with Andrew Gibson which is a habitat plant collected in the Karkloof forests by Andrew Gibson presumably in the late 1980’s.
I bought my Andrew Gibson from the late Mick Dower and was absolutely infatuated with the plant, specifically because of the unusual colours that seem to be like paint brushed onto the back of the petals. The plant pushes suckers frequently with at least 2 off-sets per year.  As a rule I do not feed my seedlings for the simple reason that I cannot afford a feeding programme for thousands of plants. I found that crosses made with Andrew Gibson flower within 3 to 4 years without any special treatment and that in itself is a bonus.

Three crosses where Andrew Gibson was used as either the berry or the pollen plant that I would like to share are Mystery Moon, My-My and Mississippi

Mystery Moon
In 2010 I crossed Magic Monica with Andrew Gibson and the outcome is a plant that opens almost white, then develops the faintest of pink on the tip and edges of the petals where after it matures to a soft pink. In this case Andrew Gibson was used as the pollen plant and Magic Monica as the Berry plant.

My-My
In 2010 I used Lynn’s Parfait pollen on Andrew Gibson and the result were mixed but all showed some traits of both and are similar to some extent to the Fairytale plants. (I have posted a photo of the outcome on another group and someone commented that the two plants are not compatible and implied that I may have made a mistake when documenting the cross made. Although I am generally very thorough and meticulous I can accept that I may from time to time make mistakes. The person did not substantiate his claim with proof in the form of photos, so I will have to wait for the same cross to flower in years to come to know whether the criticism levelled was correct.)
As far as I know there are no known back ground breeding available on Lynn’s Parfait as the plant was ‘discovered’ growing in a garden. It has rather small flowers but are none the less exquisite.
My – My has smaller flowers than Andrew Gibson but a little larger than Lynn’s Parfait.

Mississippi
I was over the moon when the first Mississippi flowered after only three years (only one seedling flowered with the rest to follow a year later). In this case Andrew Gibson was used as the pollen plant on a Chiffon (that I bought from Sean Chubb at the 2008 Auction in Pretoria) and the reverse cross was made where Chiffon was used as pollen plant on Andrew Gibson. Both crosses flowered similarly.
What makes this cross special is more than 80% flowered yellow with splashes of pink. The rest flowered white with more of the pink colour showing on the inside of the petals. All the flowers are much bigger than Andrew Gibson and in shape and size similar to Chiffon

Thank you Rouzell for sharing your breeding with us. I think your Mississippi range is a huge step forward. Well Done!
Have you kept record of the pigmentation of the seedlings of your various crosses?

Hi Rouzell

Thanks for the very informative article about Andrew Gibson crosses.  You have now made me very inquisitive now, as I have made quite a few crosses. One was Yellow Aurea cross tropical sun which will be interesting to see as some of the seedlings that come out of the cross were pigmented and most of them were green stems. As the yellow Aurea has a big flower.
Then it is Andrew Gibson cross Hantie which I acquired pollen which I mentioned on the Forum that I was told come out the same stable as Andrew Gibson then found out it is not related.  I will have to wait another few years to see the outcome of this cross.
But I am pleased to see the outcome of your Chiffon daughters cross Andrew Gibson that you made.

Kind regards Frits

Thanks for sharing. I have been enjoying the Monday reads. Keep them
coming.

Do most Andrew Gibson crosses them to have narrow leaves? My seedlings tend to be.
