    I wasnt sure what these all looked like, so I googled them:

    Red Bug:
    http://www.planthaven.com/sarrredb.html

    June Bug:
    http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/77240/

    Love Bug:
    http://www.arthurmag.com/2009/05/19/...y-lord-whimsy/

    Lady Bug:
    http://www.humboldt.edu/~rrz7001/zphotos/S_ladybug.html

    Doodle Bug:
    http://www.plantdel.com/Catalog/Curr...ail/05969.html

    hmmm..they dont really interest me at all..
    out of all of them, the only one I would really want is "Red Bug"..
    the rest are all too "deformed" looking for my tastes..
    I especially dont care for hybrids with S. psittacina in them..
    but thats just me.

    Hey Scot - it's not just you. For the most part I don't care for hybrids with S. psittacina, either.

    I love psittacina hybrids! i think it gives them flare! Also, the lady bug is pretty awesome, you have to actually see it.

    I'm interested in getting a psittacina, but I couldn't imagine crossing it with something. The look would be... weird.

    Although it would be fun to do some godawful demon cross, like (S. 'Judith Hindle' x S. 'Adrian Slack') x (S. Orephila x S. Minor).


    Edit: Looks like D'Amato's nursery is ahead of me. "S. x 'Abnorma'": S. [ (flava v. rugelli x leuc) x (x Royal Ruby)] x [(x wilissi) x flava v. cuprea] O_o

    Me either...except when crossed with a really good leuco. I still think the 'Bug' series is an awful mess, but good starter plants for beginners. After that..they should all be destroyed!! Mwa ha ha haaaa...blech!

    Not even with a leuco IMO Not even a Moorei could make those crosses look good...Looks like psittacina is the black sheep of the Sarr family LOL I wouldnt destroy them though

    seriously, u can't even feed it! You gotta pry its hood open to toss a bug inside if u wanted to. What's up with THAT? Yes i'm lazy. And darlingtonias don't count cause they're too cool. Nor scarlet belles.
