    Nice Work! I had not even considered hybridizing anything with intermedia, aliceae, or filiformis.
    NatchGreyes told me about this thread + forum, so I wanted to come check it out. I've got Capensis, spat(fraziers island) and venusta flowering right now so I hope to get some successful cross pollinations this week. I've found that waiting for the flowers to open is a bit tricky for me. I only have about two hours before the cape or spat closes. My venusta however has been slowly opening for the past four days.

    Heh, the seed pods are still growing, so it will be a while. Of all things, the affinis crossed pod is the most swollen of all of them (fingers crossed)! I did harvest seeds from the Lantau x filiformis cross, though the capensis x fil failed along with likely the reverse direction of affinis. In other news, though, more capensis crosses have succeeded, and I'm working on a few with rotundifolia.
    Sundewwolf, it can be very tricky to catch the flowers at just the right time. D. natalensis only seems to open for a couple hours early in the morning, spatulatas in the middle of the day, while ones like sp. Lantau and capensis stay open all day for me. I'm just lucky I happen to be home most days during the day to catch them (hence my already extensive and still growing list of new hybrids).

    Another new one, has not reached flowering size yet but I can see signs of both parents: D. sp. Lantau Island x brevifolia

    The leaves have more angular edges than Lantau, and are wider

    Couple quick notes before pics: it appears I may have succeeded with the filiformis x affinis and Lantau crosses, there are sprouts in both batches. I have recently harvested multiple capensis crosses (both directions for the majority), multiple supposed rotundifolia crosses are sprouting (including with capensis 'Albino'), and I am working on new crosses with filiformis "FL All Red."

    Now, for a couple pics: my D. madagascariensis x affinis cross was a success, with at least one hybrid plant resulting so far. It's intermediate between the parents, with a madag-leaning growth pattern and affinis-like leaves

    Another hybrid I haven't yet posted about: D. spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" x anglica Oregon. A successful remake of D. x nagamotoi

    Also, not sure if the filiformis-side cross with the intermedia Easton took ,but I may have a second shot, and there is a second All Red flower stalk coming up, so if it survives I may be able to cross it with my now-flowering intermedia Mt. Roraima, and produce a true tropical x hybrida!
    Also still holding fingers crossed that one of my capensis plants and maybe affinis or madagascariensis will flower again so I can cross those with the filiformis. Exciting times indeed....

    I just use regular 2 or 4 foot T8 shop lights. They stay on for about 16 1/2 hours of the day, actually, from 6 in the morning to 10:30 at night. I'd like to have stronger lights of course, to increase color and flowering of the rarer species, but college students are limited on funds....

    Another new hybrid showing its characteristics now, D. aliciae x sp. Lantau Island. The reverse cross is also sprouting ,but much younger at this point

    I also had this guy pop up in a pot with D. anglica "Alakai Swamp HI" plants. Some D. spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney' seeds spilled in too, but this guy doesn't match their growth pattern either. I'm guessing it's an anglica hybrid, but until it matures I have no clue
