Since micros are the result of two pairs of dwarf genes, you could use a dwarf potato leaf as the female, and then you'd see the success of the cross in the RL f1's and it wouldn't be too hard to get the double dwarf back in the f2's.

Hi-
Thanks for the tip, and that should work even better than my original idea. I'm really interested in the F1's, but might go further.
