    Hello everyone,

    I would like to ask a bit strange question.
    State beforhand that I study in an University of Fine Arts and I know very little about botany.
    Assuming that the four-leaf clover (symbol of luck in many cultures) is actually a deformation of the clover.
    I'd like to be able to reproduce a four leaf clover through botanicals procedures.- but do not know how.
    Genetic modification?
    grafts?
    do you it believe is possible?

    thank you in advance,

    gemma

    This is already being done. Check out the Wikipedia article on Four-leaf Clover.

    Wow! The answer was so easy going.
    Thank you, I didn't check there before.
