    Just a question:

    What would S psittacina (purpurea ssp. venosa x minor) look like?

    Purps and psitts create interesting shapes
    I have one on the way lol but it isnt flowering. The above list are the ones from my collection that are in flower.

    I have a few ideas, I just hope the flowers open at the same time now.

    Keep your eyes peeled for some seeds later in the year folks

    Joel,

    I am in the same boat as you as far as wanting things open in tandem. If it looks like you are going to miss blooms that you would like to cross then store the pollen from the early one to use on the late one. I am doing this myself right now. Two methods I have had recommended are to collect pollen on foil and store in frige or cut the bloom and store the whole thing in frige with the stem stuck in water.

    Our best suggestion, Joel, is to use the most select clones. Have an idea as to what a goal may be for any particular cross, and consider vigor and disease resistance as positive attributes to breed for in a hybrid.

    Thank you for the tips ..

    I dont plan to cross any weak or dull plants. Im infact in the process of getting rid of them to make room for better specimens.

    Here is a link illustrating the parents and the resulting hybrid crosses.
