    Just recently I was successful in producing the following hybrid seed from my gigunda regia:
    regia x admirabilis
    regia x binata dichotoma giant
    regia x binata multifida extrema
    regia x capensis giant wide leaf form

    Is there potential for these seed being fertile? They were very plump and had the appearance of very healthy normal seed. I haven't been able to find any photos or information on other regia crosses. Have any others been done?

    Wow. You sure would think somebody would have tried, but I have never heard of a hybrid with D. regia before.
    Hope the seed germinate for you...

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Yes the regia did self. I hand pollinated each flower when the stigma were fully developed. So far I've harvested 3 selfed pods and tons of seed fell out. I have maybe 30 more pods on the plant...there were 3 flower spikes.

    I really hope those seeds germinate, since I've never heard of a D. regia hybrid before. Keep us posted!

    Congrats on gettign D. regia from seed.
    I tried pollinating a D. venusta with D. regia pollen and the seedlings look like D. venusta. Not really a regulated experiment either.Like I didn't take the anthers off of the venuta flower.
    But I have Grown D. regia from seed and wrote and article . It was published in the BACPS newsletter. fall os 2005 , I think.
    Of the 21 seedlings that lived to grow,(didn't count how many seeds that i started with)I gave 2 away and don't know their current status the rest have continued to thrive, the tallest one is about 10 inches tall now, 2 years after germination.
    Thanx for listening and keep on trying for those hybrids.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    Hello Lois,

    Well I can tell you the one you gave me is thriving. It is no monster but it grows happily and well. I might up size the pot and see if that helps.
