    The other thing to remember is that even with good genes Sarracenia are somewhat prone to inbreeding depression. Even so, these seeds should produce some sweet looking plants. Unfortunately I'm not so blessed to have any sarracenia not on that list

    Use a punnett square for every gene? NO WAY!

    If you ever take genetics in college (I did...unfortunately), you'll have to solve problems that are like:

    Gene AaBbCcDdEEfFGGHHIijJkkLLmM is selfed...figure out the offspring.

    no thanks to that....

    That is why I like the way they do cultivars with orchids. If it is not that exact plant or a clone of that plant you cannot call it that cultivar. I agree with the others that if you take Leah and cross it with Leah the children are going to come our different. Some may exibit some or a couple of leah's trates, but they will not be Leah. Even with the way culitvars are done in CPs you couldn't call all the seeds produced Leah wilkerson because you do not knwo if all of them exibit the trates of the orriginal desciption. You would have to grow them up and the compair and the ones that exibit her trate could be called that, but not the others. Now you can advertise them as S. 'Leah Wilkerson' x self seeds, but you cannot accurately describe them as 'Leah Wilkerson' seeds. It could be constituted as fraud since you are selling them on Ebay if someone wanted to push the issue. Just a warning. Especialy if somone buys the seeds for a pretty penny then grows them up and none of the offspring exibit the trates described for 'leah wilkerson' you mentioned.

    The thing about Punnett squares is that when you try to deal with more than one gene, you instantly get tables that can't be visualized (at least by most people.) A two-gene Punnett square is a hypercube, a uniformly-bounded four-dimensional figure. Every additional gene requires the addition of two new dimensions to the table, so by the time you reach four or five genes you're beyond the visualization capacity of even the most highly talented savants. You can condense the information into a two-dimensional chart, but it quickly becomes illegible or unmanageable. When you add in the fact that most genes are more than simply dominant or recessive, Punnett squares become quite impractical, if not more or less useless.
