Yellow-Green Leaf Variety
Phenotype: yellow-green leaves
Yellow-Green Leaf is a true-breeding Fast Plants stock that is homozygous recessive for a gene that causes cotyledons, leaves, stems, and developing pods to have a light yellow-green color as compared to the green of Standard Fast Plants. This stock also shows purple coloration in stems, leaves and bud tips.
Note: the Yellow-Green Leaf trait must be observed in plants that are grown in soil; this trait cannot be distinguished in seedlings that are germinated on paper towel.
