    Bob,
    Thanks for sharing the location of this article. Interestingly, it appears that D. regia is closer to Aldrovanda than Dionaea in the large chart but equal distance from both in the small chart...
    All the best,
    Ron

    Hey there PHil.
    Sounds like you have a valid experiment going there.
    I didn't have time to look up who may be compatible with whom, when I attempted my venusta cross,
    I'm older now and am a wee bit more informed.
    Looks like you are way ahead of me on that learning curve.
    Good luck

    Alas, I believe Tamlin was correct. The hybrid crosses seem to be sterile. As of yet there has not been any germination. I haven't heard yet about the seed sown in vitro, but I would guess they too...are sterile. It was a good idea but has not reaped any rewards.

    any further updates with the hybrids?
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    My Growlist updated with available trades and pictures - PM if interested
