    if any of you have been to the uk forum, in the general discussion section theres a post about a D. Regia x dionea. i say its perposterous. they say adrian slack did it.

    what do you think?

    by the way, i was watching the osbournes and ozzy had trouble getting off of his couch. he said it was like a venus flytrap . :-)

    it is not possible to cross two different genus of any living thing on this planet, but you can cross two different species [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]

    Sorry to disagree: this cross has been attempted between D. regia and Dionaea. I can't recall all the particulars, but I do know the genetic material was exchanged between them. I believe the seed produced was either defective, ot that the seedlings aborted right after germination. I think this was a listserve dicussion sometime in the past, and a search of the archives will reveal more details. Please give us an update if you learn anything further on this subject.

    Actually there are thousands and thousands of hybrids between different genera in just the Orchid family alone.

    Wow, that would be wild. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]
    I have tried but I can't even imagine what that would look like.
    I can't wait to see if it's true.
