    Hopeful Hybrids

    I've been thinking about hybridizing plants, and was just wondering: If you could make any hybrid in any genus, what would it be? It doesn't even have to be possible, I'd love to see a burmannii crossed with a capensis! But for ones that are, your opinions may spark some ideas for those whose plants that are in bloom.

    well if we get to be totally unrealistic, D. capensis x scorpiodes. Big long stem with alien arms. If i had to take it seriously though, N. venticosa x (talangensis x bongso). looks cool, but i'd imagine i'd have about as much luck getting my hands on the genetic material as i would hybridizing a capensis and scorpiodes...

    N. inermis and N. aristolochioides grow sympatrically so there is a good chance it exists. Maybe some inermis seedlings will turn out to be that.

    I would love to see a cross between all the toothy neps like you mentioned Pineapple. I'd also like to see a rafflesiana x bicalcarata, but one that retained the bical's fangs.

    Okay, you said it didn't have to be remotely possible...
    so here goes...
    Cross a Villosa with a VFT,
    for a Nep with sharp teeth & a biting action!
    Or perhaps a VFT with a Hamata,
    for a VFT with a little more "sharp toothy-fang" to it!
    ...and lastly,
    a nice Sundew with a VFT,
    for a dew with a bit more "rapid grasping action"!

    Well, you asked!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
