    I'm not sure what IIRC stands for, but the Dioneae x D. regia hybrid didn't work out well.

    What are you talking about? Please point me in the direction of technology that allows someone to create a plant. Oh wait...

    he means by like adding and removing genes to make a new plant.... like uh...genetically enhanced veggies and fruits.
    Cindy: go for it! all you have to loose is a D. indica(im sure you got burmannii all over the place)

    You wouldn't necessarily have to remove or add anything. I'm not an expert on ferns, but they have what...23,000 genes or something? Compare that to Arabidopsis, which has...i can't remember the exact number...but its less than 10. Usually plants will sort themselves out, i mean...look at polyploidy. Also, yes, GMOs are created by cutting a gene from DNA of an organism and inserting it to another, but this is done for disease resistance, ability to tolerate a wider temperature range, etc. If a cross doesn't work, its not going to work. Gene splicing (at least not in the near future) wouldn't allow two organisms that have divered so far in the past to be hybridized. To get that effect, you'd probably have to create a graft chimera

    I can see you cooking up ideas and retreating to your basement for a month

    Trust me man, if I had the funding/space...I'd be all over it. As far as I know, no one is conducting experiments with graft chimeras in the CP world (though of course, I may be wrong). Also, remember those D. regia x Dionaea hybrids? If I am correct, I think only a handful of people (3 or so...) tried them, and the seedlings all died. Personally, I think a D. regia x Aldrovanda or Aldrovanda x Dionaea would be "heartier" and would have a higher possibility of surviving, at least longer than D. regia x Dionaea. If I could get my hands on some of those seedlings though...man do I have some ideas haha.

    Someone get me some government grants or something
