    Strange Cross?

    Hi guys! I don't really know anything about the genetic capability between sundews, so I thought I might post this here. As of right now, I have a D. Adelae getting ready to flower and a D. Capensis that is flowering soon as well. Is it possible to cross these two plants, regardless if the resulting offspring will be infertile or not? Will I get viable seeds of some sort? I will probably try regardless, and most definitely by pollinating the Adelae, as I know the capensis will produce seed no matter what, in which case the hybrid seed would be hard to differentiate. I'm all ears! (Am I crazy for asking this? )

    I've never seen anything crossed with D. adelae.

    Here's some lists of Drosera hybrids:
