    Keep us posted. I'm interested to hear more about the little guy!

    Did the first one die after flowering?

    It's interesting that so many people have concerns and doubts about the fact that the little seedlings are out of TC.
    It's science, baby. Eliminate those variables! I agree with you that it seems improbable that, of thousands, a single individual would do this, and then only its progeny would also display the same aberration/trait. However, it seems like starting another batch of seeds not in vivo would be the next step. Leave nothing to chance.

    Nope, it's alive and well.

    Good point. I'll sow another batch of self-pollinated seedlings at some point in the future and see if the trait is carried onto the next generation again. The problem is that doing it in vivo takes about 5 times as long as it does in vitro. It's unlikely that anyone reading this thread (other than me) will even remember the "early bloomer" by the time it is verified in vivo

    True it'll take a while, but "anything worth doing...". I'd also be interested to see what percentage of "early bloomers" you get if you do a cross with a given typical, for both in and out of glass. I'm not sure what sort of concern there would be for decreased fitness due to repeated selfing, but be sure to remember to do a batch of seeds in vivo and one in vitro to control for that. But you probably realized that already. :P

    Maybe, but I looked forward to be reminded!

    I'm just wondering Mmlr38, how did you get an interest in tissue culture, and how did you start? I've been researching it and it seems like a very interesting hobby, but is it really as difficult as some people say to sterilize all of the materials and grow plants in vitro successfully?
