    I would be interested as well but unfortunately I don't think I can afford the whole collection. Keep up the good work Brad!!

    Hi Matt,

    They don't look familiar to me either. There are over 70,000 registered daylilies out there. It might help us if you gave us some additional information, like how tall are the scapes, and what is the bloom size?

  • Becki Pavlik replied to the topic '1st Year Seedling vs 3rd Year' in the forum.
    I know alot of the bigger breeders may get hundreds of seeds of the same cross and plant all of them. If I had acreage, I probably would too, but I don't. I have less than a quarter of an acre lot and my house sits in the middle. The first 7 years I lived here I started 1000-1500 seeds in my basement. For the last 3 years only about 500-700 seeds and this past winter only about 100 because I knew I was going to be selling this house and moving to a smaller one and this house doesn't have a basement to start seeds in. From now on, I'll have no choice but to plant them directly in the ground. I planted about 100 seeds in the ground this past May but only about 50 germinated and they look really small and pathetic. I won't be taking any of them with me to the new house.

    Even as my seedlings improved over the years because I was acquiring and using better parents, I still have to do rigorous annual culling just to have room for planting out new seedlings. Because of a minimum amount of growing space, I've have always just planted 6-10 of the largest seeds of any given cross and sold or given away the rest. I know that's not necessarily the best chance of seeing what all a cross might produce but at least it gives me a general idea.

  • Becki Pavlik replied to the topic 'Rooting Proliferations, Best Technique?' in the forum.
    I think alot of techniques may work for some but maybe not for someone else with the same method because there are alot of variables once the prolif is brought indoors and then planted outdoors again later, as well as the maturity of the prolif when it is removed from its mama.

    I've had pretty good success with them from various tetraploids. I've never tried it with any diploids. I don't know whether the ploidy has anything to do with it or not, just saying..lol.

    I have a 4 year old seedling in particular that every scape produces 2-3 proliferations every year. I would say that 95% of the ones I've taken, rooted and planted out have survived. I wait until the scape has finished blooming and there is at least 1-2 teeny roots starting to form at the base of the prolif. I cut it a good 4" below the prolif so I have something for the prolif to stand in a cup or glass of water with, and a good 2" above the prolif. I fill a cup or glass with water so that the base of the prolif and roots are just barely covered and be sure to change the water every single day, which I think is crucial to prevent bacteria from forming in the water. I plant it back outdoors in a place that is shaded in the hottest part of the day so it doesn't and then move it the next season to its permanent place. I don't use a fungicide or any rooting hormone, just clean fresh water every day.

    Another thing that I think was important is making sure to keep the prolif that you plant back outdoors watered every couple of days for a couple of weeks at least. I also fertilize them once a week with a half strength Miracle Grow solution. Remember you had those roots forming in a glass of water, so they'll need to toughen up and grow alot more to hold the prolif in the ground for the upcoming winter season or it will heave out and die. I plant them in an area that is mixed half and half with our Ohio native clay (which is either sticky slimey or rock hard like concrete) and bagged garden soil which is mostly a peat based product. I loosely put a good couple of inches of mulch around the plants before the ground freezes to protect them a little. That's it.
