Are testing kits/devices available to see whether ones plants are diploids ore triploids as when a cross is made it is important to know which is which.

Brian as far as I am aware the only way is by counting the chromosomes using a microscope. I have not heard of a simple test or kit to do the job.

Off hand, does anyone know how powerful a microscope you'd need to do this? x100, x200? More?

Thanks!
