Propagation of bulbs by twin-scaling

, : Propagation of bulbs by twin-scaling. Garden, UK 108(10): 402-405

The method of preparing twin-scales (pieces of two adjacent scales joined by a more-or-less triangular piece of basal plate) is described and illustrated. After incubation in polyethylene bags at 15-22 degrees C for 12-16 weeks, twin scales and their bulbils are planted in sterilized compost. The bulbs should reach flowering size in 3-4 years. A Narcissus bulb with a 10 cm circumference should yield 32 twin-scales plus 8 central chips, and 70% of these should form a bulbil.

Twin-scale productivity is highly variable, and an assessment of between-bulb differences in twin-scale productivity revealed only weak between-bulb effects, partly due to seasonal effects or to the inclusion of atypical bulbs. Differences in the...
