    Awesome work. I have a few species flowering right now that I am going to try to cross as well.

    Bluemax, I think you're confusing a few.... I have spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" x anglica, and Lantau x capensis. I do not (yet) have Lantau x anglica, and have only recently begun sprouting capensis x spatulata variants (the reverse is being worked on now).

    Oops! I shouldn't trust my memory when it comes to spatulata varieties. I've always found them to be a bit mind-boggling. Nonetheless, the complement stands.

    swapping anthers is the very best and smartest way to do it

    Rubbing the flowers together is a very bad idea if you want to be sure to have only hybrids. There's still a chance of contamination as the anthers are being removed, but once they are fully out of the flower and swapped with whatever it's being crossed with there's a very high likelihood then of most seeds produced being hybrid only.

    Also, news: recently harvested and sowed seeds of D. filiformis "FL All Red" x tokaiensis and reverse and filiformis "FL All Red" x capensis typical. The reverse of the latter has been harvested but not yet sown, and I recently attempted two crosses between D. anglica Alakai Swamp, HI and two different spatulata forms. Sadly, I am not sure my attempt at D. intermedia Mt. Roraima x filiformis FL red succeeded, so that may wait yet another year....

    yea I figured, I just remember some people mashing flowers and trying to use their eye to pick out "hybrids"
    been a while since I messed with hybrids tho. but when I did I would try to cut the anthers off aswell, and rinse the flower with water unless I knew the flower was incompatible with itself, example binata , paradoxa , etc. then id mash away

    one thing I never tried was raising chromosome counts. have any of you tried messing with clochline? (i forget the spelling)

    I believe it's colchicine. And that's a chemical rather hard to come by.
