    I tried to find articles on Magic Lantern (delenatii x micranthum) vs the (micranthum x delenatii) since I've seen it written both ways. Anyone found one?

    Phyrex, both (delenatii x micranthum) and (micanthum x delenatii) can be called Magic Lantern.
    If I recall correctly you wanted a bloom with less inflated pouch. Then I recomend (delenatii x micranthum) because many people say that the pod parent has more influence than the pollen parent usually. Whether that is true or a myth, I don't know. Somehow it seems true and breeders stick to it.
    The fact is that there is always more DNA from the pod parent than the pollen parent in the plant because mitochondia has a set of DNA separate from the nucleus. The Mitochondrial DNA only comes from the pod parent, while the DNA in the nucleus is half pod and half pollen parent. How much effect this mitochondrial DNA may have on the blooms is uncertain to me.

    Thanks Fren for the very in-depth answer. You're right on with me wanting the "less inflated pouch". delenatti x micranthum it is. It's quite interesting the DNA combination b/w two plants; never was any good at biology
