Many attempts to TC it have been made but as far as I know all have failed to produce a varigated ae ae most end up albino or all green... there are some technical reasons why TC can't produce a copy of the ae ae but I don't know enough about it to give you an informed answer.... I think randy4ut knows a little about it though.

No prob ... unfortunately until something changes it looks like we will have to keep paying big money for the ae ae. I am waiting for someone with an all green ae ae to sell (or give) and I am going to get it just so I can say I have one

miamimax (which, if I recall correctly, goes by "varig8" here), wrote the following information about Ae Ae on the gardenweb forum at http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/l...082717618.html

Quote:
Now as for AeAe and variations on sucker coloration and amounts of variegation in them; AeAe is a somatic variegate as opposed to a genetic variegate- (a 'sport'or chimera). Genetic variegates are stable and come true from seed and can easily be tissue cultured. In AeAe the amount of variegation in each plant depends on; #1. How much mutant tissue is in the apical meristem, and #2. Where that mutant tissue is in the apical meristem when a sucker is developing in the corm. This mutant tissue moves and revolves around the apical meristem. Some AeAe have LOTS of white, some have a little with shades of different greens and greys.Some AeAe are completely green. They are ALL still AeAe. When the AeAe produces suckers, they will oftentimes produce pure white suckers, which die right away if removed, or languish while feeding off the mother until it eventually dies. It will also send up some normal green suckers, and then you'll get a few nice evenly proportioned variegated suckers. This is the reason they remain expensive. The better variegated plant you start with, the better chance you have at getting more variegated suckers, as this plant will have more mutant tissue in it's apical meristem.
He also posted on this thread http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/l...263316572.html but I think Frank's (aka "Bigdog") comments were particularly helpful in explaining this (excerpt from Jun 26, 07 post):

Quote:
There are periclinal, mericlinal, and sectorial arrangements in the apical meristem that can produce variegation. Periclinal arrangements are where a layer of mutated tissue completely surrounds an inner core of nonmutated tissue. Mericlinal arrangements are where cells that carry the mutant gene occupy only a part of the outer cell layer of the plant. Sectorial arrangements is where the mutated tissue involves a sector of the stem but extends all the way from the surface to the center. This type is rare, usually only occuring in an embryo or root tip, and quickly reverts to either periclinal or mericlinal chimeras. I believe that the AeAe fall under the mericlinal category. I'm not really certain what somatic variegation is...although I thought it had something to do with tissue culture. Anyhow, tissue culturing a mericlinal chimera would result in an all-green or all-white plant it would seem, depending on where the tissue was taken on the apical meristem.
Maybe someone can take the time to edit this and post it to the wiki.

Harvey thank you for posting that... I will add it to the wiki when I get home (computer at work is slooooooooooooow, and I occasionally have to actually work) if someone else beats me to it then that is ok too

Thanks, James. My brain is just too tired right now to feel confident I'd get it straight!
