Last year, I did some experiments with peppers and polyploidy, but those were kinda goofed due to lack of proper equipment. This year I do more research in a much more professional way, on the fast plant Brassica rapa and the sundew Drosera adelae to see how polyploidy effects sexual and asexual reproduction.

Everything post treatment waiting to be rinsed. That is done tomorrow: http://i.imgur.com/BLHIbv0.jpg

 

More to come later, when stuff actually happens.

No tissue culture here. Sundews of this species grow super fast from leaf and root cuttings, which were what was exposed. The filter paper is just to make cleaning up easier.

Sorry, haven't been paying attention to the thread.

 

 

Yes there is. One of them has really wide, flat leaves and is also a lot taller than the other ones. I'll post a picture of it soon.

I can hardly wait to see the pictures. 

 

What were your ideas behind experimenting with peppers and polyploidy?
