    Looking for some hybrid Experts ...

    Hiya,

    Here is a list of what I have in flower at present. I have a few ideas of what I would like to cross but I would also like some other opinions.

    This being my first year in trying to create something a little special I would appreciate the input experienced eye.

    Also, I am unable to house everything I cross this year so anyone helping me out will get first dibs when it comes to passing around the seed Wink

    Joel

    Quite a bit to chose from

    My suggestions would be these (or their recipricals):

    RTF x leuco "HCW"
    RTF x leuco "pink tube"
    RTF X (leuco x oreo)
    minor "okee giant" x leuco "HCW"
    'Juthatip Soper' x leuco "HCW"
    'Juthatip Soper' x RTF
    'Juthatip Soper' x minor "okee giant"
    'Juthatip Soper' x oreo
    'Juthatip Soper' x (leuco x oreo)

    I would definitely cross some of the great flavas you have with eachother. I'd definitely cross flava rubricorpora x leuco Pink Tube, alata Heavy Veined x leuco Pink Tube, alata Copper Lid x flava cuprea, minor Okee Giant x any flava, oreo x any flava/alata. Ahh...so many great possibilities. Good luck!

    And what the heck is flava 'Pocahantas'?

    Joel,

    Yes RTF = Red Tube Flava.

    Sorry, short hand between myself and some friends, I forgot it was not universal

    You are leaving out the oreo. It is supposed to impart outstanding color and vigor. I question the color part as none of my crosses are that colorful but the oreo hybrids I do have are very vigorous. If you are serious about breeding, you will need to get a hold of rubra alabamensis. It is supposed to impart very intersting hoods, like Hummer's Hammer Head.
