X-ray Mutagenesis on Poppy


I exposed a large number of poppy seed from my collection from breadseed poppies that I've grown in the past. The supply was settled at 3v and the duration was about 3 minutes.


Some germination maybe spotted, I'm tempted to try and setup a macro time-lapse out there.


Here's a picture of one of the little guys:


1/24: not too much more germination or growth apparent, nothing looks mutated yet either.


Nothing too exciting to report besides it looks like a snail got one of my prized mutants, but it looks like there might be some interesting ones that will make it to flowering. I planted a patch of unexposed seeds to have a control as well.

Here's a pic from 2/18:



It looks like only one poppy survived:


There were two... but the smaller one just disappeared... might be a little shop of horrors thing going on here.
