    Exclamation New D. kennealyii hybrid!

    I'm pleased to announce the successful crossing of my Drosera kennealyii X Drosera lanata "wooly"

    The one supposed photo of such a cross in Bob Z's CP photobase doesn't quite show enough traits of both proposed parents, so it's authenticity is quite questionable, in my opinion. You will in no doubt, see a big difference as compared to mine. Please enjoy the following photos! I welcome your comments...

    Drosera kennealyii X Drosera lanata = (D. "Wooly Booly")


    The large "fuzzier" form shall be applied for cultivar status as Drosera "Wooly Booly"


    Note the diversity amongst seedling forms, however all plants clearly show traits of both parents involved, especially the wide red leaf blade of D. kennealyii and extreme "fuzzyness" of my Drosera lanata "wooly" form.


    And....here's two shots of the actual parent plants prior to flowering;



    Thanks for looking and Happy Growing,
    Brian

    Kewl! Now ya got me thinking... I've got a lanata that is sending up a scape and kenealleyi that aren't doing a thing at the moment.

    So how does it work with the names? Is the first name listed in a cross the male or the female contributor? And if I do the opposite, could I call that one 'Sam The Sham'?

    Brian,
    You're doing a great job growing some very health petios - congrats! While I'm normally not a big fan of hybrids - that cross is pretty cool.

    Jim,
    The seed producer (female) is always the 1st listed in the cross iirc...
    All the best,
