JMG Question for Ron (or anyone) if you have time
One more JMG question if anyone has time to educate me yet again. This question regards the same JMG that I requested an ID for last week to which Ron responded:
"I think this originated with "Akatsuki no Murasaki" and picked up the gene for displaying only the rayed pattern , although the tube and ray colors are still basically the same as the ANM can display either early or later on in the day...it may have a name in Japan although I don't recall exactly what..."
Here is another bloom from that group of plants with an unusual formation in the center of the bloom. Is this a defect, or a desirable anomaly? If the plant sets seed, will the subsequent plants be likely to exhibit this characteristic? I rather like it so I think I may hand pollinate subsequent blooms to try to get a few seeds. I have a suspicion that the extra material might preclude natural pollination.
