I'm stoked today because two of my pulchella hybrids have germinated recently: collina x pulchella and [heterodoxa x ionasi] x pulchella. In huberi x pulchella, the father's bristles came through nicely. So I'm really hopeful that I can get the orange color, size, and form from HxI plus the bristles from pulchella. Still waiting on most of the seeds in vitro, but I was starting to give up hope so I'm just grateful to see signs of life. FWIW collina x self also yielded viable sprouts.
