    "vigor" doesn't seem to be one of this hybrids attributes.. Thats it in the middle of two capensis seedlings that sprouted two weeks after (i put them there on purpose)

    Eighth leaf so far, putting out a ninth:

    Keep a close eye on it then. The hybrid seedlings that I get that move really, really slow tend to have about a 30% chance of making it. If they do, they often take off. If not, well, you'll find out quickly.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    i used an exacto knife to move some soil away from the plant so hopefully more oxygen can reach the roots. its sitting on a tiny pedestal of dirt now. I've always noticed that seedling on the edge of the pots grow faster and i think that may be because the roots get more oxygen. thats why i put those capensis seedlings on the edge and may also be a reason theyre so much bigger but capensis do grow fast anyways...

    wait and see...

    'Haven't seen this thread as I've been out of circulation until recently. Nice going! The little guy may be small but it looks healthy when you look at the full sized photo. For some reason capensis just seems to be one of the more interesting partners for a cross.

    It's getting bigger and bigger but now it's starting to look like a regular madagascariensis. I really hope that's not the case

    I 100% agree. If it's not a capensis hybrid it's not worth attempting IMO. All other hybrids look way too much alike to me.
    I have 5 big fat seed pods ripening now that are a capensisXadmirabilis cross. I'm excited
