Plants of the foliarly variegated cultivar Saintpaulia ionantha Tommie Lou and the florally variegated cultivar Candy Lou were regenerated through tissue culture from leaf sections, petal sections, and subepidermal tissue. This provided explants with derivatives of all histogen layers of the shoot apex, layers I and II only, and layers II and III only. Over 1,000 plants of Tommie Lou and Candy Lou were grown to flowering. A low level of phenotypic variation was observed, but in no case could… CONTINUE READING
