    The natalensis x tokaiensis began flowering, petals are smaller and more rounded than the seed parent, and a darker shade of pink, so this confirms it as a successful cross!

    Also, not a spectacular hybrid, but a new spatulata form made by crossing 'Tamlin' with "Pink flower, Royal National Park, Sydney." The resulting plants are larger than the pink flower plants, and have intermediate flower colors, resulting in a nice mauve, pale pink color.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    Mmm, a filiformis hybrid. When can we expect pictures?

    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
