  Amorph. chromosome number
From: plantguy at zoominternet.net> on 2005.03.10 at 04:59:35(12784)
Hello fellow Amorph-a-holics,

I've got a few different species of Amorphs either
blooming now or in the near future and was hoping to try some crosses this
year. I've collected pollen from konjac so far and am now anxiously
awaiting the blooming of several others, including the fantastic verticillatus
that I got from Alan last fall (thanks Alan). I was hoping someone
might be able to tell me how I can find out chromosome numbers for the various
species as a way of refining my attempts to those that have the chances of
success. I'm guessing that someone must have looked at chromosome
number for a thesis project at some point in time. Thanks in
advance,

Dan

Dan, don't worry about details (chromosome counts, sections etc.) Just DO
it! Save pollen and cross in any way you can. Just keep records of what you do.
