I think that i have found the bests conditions for the best germination of my tetsukabutos F2. I note that tetsukabuto x violino rugosa required a lot of heat for germinate.I have try a germination in my greenhouse under a wintering veil.I have measured the temperature under the wintering veil and she was between 3°C 37,4°F and 42°C 107,4°F and a humidity between 56 and 99%.The germ is more vigorous in greenhouse than in the house who i have mesured a temperatur between 15°C 59°F and 23°C 73,4°F with a humidity between 35 and 45%.
with a new plant variety it can take a few seasons to figure that out. we usually give squash plants a few meters square, but some are smaller than others and some really can sprawl quite a bit (the Baby Blue Hubbards covered almost 10 square meters for just one plant so they were growing all over each other).
The seeds tetsukabuto x moschata have a germination very difficults.They accepted to germinate but the germs are extremely thin and the collar is small.The roots are above the potting soil, i have try to hillock them.It scary but they are largely alive! They are did a lot of roots.

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange
Oct 18, 2022 21:36:29 GMT -5
wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type
Oct 18, 2022 21:38:28 GMT -5
wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)
