Over the last 25 years I have worked on a method and technique to incorporate tissue culture into stem propagation with the goal of producing high quality perfect clones of the parent chimera African violets with higher yields then standard stem propagation . Every chimera is sold only when it has bloomed true to the parent, never before. The result has been maintaining the plant attributes as they were introduced by the hybridizer.
It is to this end that I have put in the effort to assure each plant that is sold is identical to the parent in terms of bloom color, leaf description and is true to the best of my ability to the hybridizers original intent or original offering. The process I use is to review photographs and descriptions of the plant if registered in the AVSA “First Class” system for comparative purposes. It is not a perfect process.
