How do you know what tulip seed is whatever color?


#1

So i’m new to breeding tulips and I can’t tell what color seed is which and how to pick one out


#2

The only way to know as far as I’ve seen is to plant it. Then, once you know, put it on a shelf or a chest or something and use a sign to label it so you know, and keep it separated from other colors. Otherwise if you mix them all together it’s like trying to find a needle in a needle stack.


#3

Use a tin spade, that way you get 1 seed and 2 bulbs.
Seeds can breed into different tulips, bulbs will always stay the same.


#4

A tin spade?


#5

Any spade will work, but tin is the BEST.


#6

Yeah, I personally use it because it is the “best spade” (in terms of durability)


#7

Impossible to be 100% sure about what color tulip will come from a seed. You can only be 100% sure from a bulb. Seeds generate random mutations and hybrids.
