    We had been hemming and hawing about this for a while; and a friend of mine whose wife is a botanist suggested that it is correct, while there are others who differ . . .

    Yes, that is far more accurate a description. Its quite clear that "hybrid" indicates a cross between two individuals NOT of the same species. There is no such thing as a "Cephalotus hybrid", since it is a nonospecific genus. I believe botany nomenclature is clear on this point. However, feel free to prove me wrong ;-)

    Hi, a quick question: What is the composition of the media culture you're using?

    For most of the Cephalotus seed, I used a standard 2:3 Knudsen-C with .75 ml/L NAA; other batches were cultured in 25% MS with vitamins at pH 5 -- some with BAP and others without any PGRs whatsoever. The best results to date -- and those shown in the photos -- came from the Knudsen-C. Other growers prefer liquid media for the species; but I have seen no real difference in the results and prefer solid cultures . . .

    Nice, I want to give TC a try with Droseras...
    Maybe you can help me out...
    So far I investigated that the MS-0 is the most widely used one, at about 30% concentration with extra sugar... I can't find at what pH...
