Product Description

I think I probably say this every year, but we love the folks over at Cliviamart. Every year they bring us better and better crosses that just make sense. 

 

Here It Comes! OUR FAMOUS BACK BREEDING TALK! This is a Laduma Selfed to create Laduma F1, and then Back Bred to its mother to strengthen the cross. 

 

ALWAYS SUPPORT BACK BREEDING AND OUT BREEDING. Back breeding is what is going on here. Outbreeding is extremely rare in the clivia world, because you give up your gorgeous expensive things seeds and spend 5 years making 2 dollar seeds. It is when you take your lines and cross them  into entirely different lines (Group 1 to group 2, or even your new superplant to a native orange)

So, when you see back breeding we must support it. Why? Because without back breeding all these plants will just get weaker and weaker until the plants become infertile or simply weak. 

 

All breeders on this site back breed. It's one of our main focuses when choosing breeders.  A couple even out breed here and there (Rouzel does tons of outbreeding)

 

Back breeding also very often results in a NICER FLOWER in that next generation ;)

 

As Always, We remind you that these are CROSSES. Not CLONES.  Seed breeding is like people breeding. If you have a parent with blue eyes and a parent with brown eyes, there's no guarantee you are getting a blue eyed kid. It all depends on the background genetics of the parents. We try to buy crosses that make sense to us, and that we think will create good flowers/plants. We buy from breeders we trust, and who understand these facts, and breed in ways that work. That reduces the risk of getting something orange. That does not remove that risk. As always the risk is lowest with like to like and selfed crosses but even with a selfed cross sometimes you get a surprise.
