I am trying to get a firm understanding of the idea of colchicine conversion. Jane and Dan Trimmer have been patient and generous with their knowledge in the times I have visited their farm. Though I have not tried it yet I am very interested in expanding my backyard hobby in this direction. I attended the Florida Mecca in May and many of the hybridizers were using Doorakian's Rose Kennedy in the Tetraploid version in the breeding programs. So here is my question.
How do you get the stable converted plant? I know you use the pollen and blooms of a converted plant to breed with other tetraploid plants. To get the stable Rose Kennedy, was it bred to itself?
