Hybridizing A,B,C's is a beginners guide to the art of hybridizing plants. Discussion begins with how this is done, seed development, sprouting seed, then progressing through general plant care to raise your seedling to adulthood. An emphasis is placed upon being organized and keeping good records of all aspects of your seedlings development. This is so that the hybridizer will choose to register and introduce the best of their seedlings to the public. To achieve this the hybridizer will need to find a way to clone their seedling so that identical copies of the plant are consistently made available. Included is discussion on plant pests and how to control the loss of your plants from these pests. Basic genetic concerns lead to common hybridizing techniques and some examples of how to use ancestry to predict future hybridid crosses. Personal examples are abundant to emphasize the effectiveness of the current topic discussed as well as some advice from accepted plant societies to guide the budding seed producer.
