FAQ: What is the "Type" mentioned in the offerings?
 
 
Question:
What is the "Type" mentioned in the offerings?

Answer: We use the term "type" to help specify the genetic background of all of our offerings. The various genetic type terms we use are explained below.
  • self - The result of a manual self-pollination, or of a pollination of the flowers of one plant with the pollen of a genetically identical clone or division.
     
  • sib cross - The result of a pollination of the flowers of one plant with the pollen of a genetically different plant that has the same parents as the first (siblings).
     
  • outcross - The result of a pollination of the flowers of one plant with the pollen of a genetically different plant of the same species that does not have the same parents as the first.
     
  • hybrid - The result of crossing two different species or hybrids.
     
  • spontaneous - The capsule(s) formed without human intervention. The pollinator and pollen donor are not known for certain, the capsule was discovered either in a greenhouse or in the wild, and could be a self, sib cross, outcross, or even a hybrid, though conditions may suggest one more strongly than another.
     
  • clone - The result of laboratory asexual propagation, a genetically identical copy of the original plant.
     
  • division - The result of manual asexual propagation, a genetically identical copy of the original plant, a portion divided off.
     
  • unknown - We just don't know what this is because of insufficient documentation; if it is from seed, however, it is not a clone or division.
