    i may have produced some unique hybrids

    after years of waiting for the two to flower simultaneously they finally did. I cross pollinated four flowers each of capensis "broad leaf" and madagascariensis. as a bonus my nidiformis was flowering too. so i have a total of 8 capensisXmadagascariensis seed pods and also 8 capensisXnidiformis flower pods.
    so far i mainly see swelling in the flowers which received the capensis pollen. I think it has something to do with the tiny pollen sacks of the nidiformis and madagascar not being compatable with the giant capensis flowers.. but luckily the capensis pollen seems to have worked and i can tell the flowers that got that pollen are (seem to be) developing.. it's been about a week now


    now i have a question: which order do the names go in relation to the flower receiving the donated pollen?

    like if the nidiformis received pollen from the capensis, would i name that hybrid capensisXnidiformis? or is it the other way around?

    Seed parent goes first in the name. Congrats on the crosses! I'm waiting for my aliciae x natalensis and vice versa pods to ripen.

    Sounds cool. I believe there is a lot of untapped potential in sundew crosses. 'Looking forward to hearing of your results.

    today i harvested a few seed pods. I sowed some nidiformisXcapensis seeds that looked pretty good and healthy, and some madagascariensisXcapensis seeds which looked iffy. im still waiting for other pods to ripen but it's beginning to look like the madagascar crosses arent as viable as the nidiformis crosses
