    Drosera madagascariensis X capensis hybrid

    Some of you may remember my old post about this. well i tried again and it seems i have had a successful germination! It's just a single seedling so far and i think i may need to work on my pollination technique but I GOT ONE

    Congrats! I attempted capensis x affinis once but the flowers were somewhat deformed and nothing showed up. Hopefully I will be able to try again soon. I do have supposedly madagascariensis x affinis though...

    That's very cool. Can't wait to see what this plant looks like as it grows. Feed every leaf! Get speedy growth!

    And once it gets big enough, make those leaf cuttings and turn your 1 into a dozen!

    ... Huh. That... would be a really weird cross. Congrats on the strike, hopefully it's not a weed or an accidental Capensis self.

    Oh oh, next up, do D. Madagascariensis x Filiformis 'Florida Red'. It'd be like a D. hybrida only, er, tall!

    CapensisXaffinis should be possible. Last time i tried this I was also able to get some capensisXnidiformis to germinate but they were overwhelmed by moss/algae before they got very big

    I've tried capensis x natalensis, but the seedlings never survive, I'd think with nidiformis being a close relative it'd be the same issue...
    Hey mcantrell, I'm working on seeing if I can get filiformis x affinis seeds to work, with the leaf shape of affinis it's almost perfect for making a climbing hybrida. seeds were produced, hopefully it wasn't the filiformis selfed and they actually germinate.

    I know this is off topic, but Indica plants readily cross here in the wild, there are 2 true forms, white and pink flowered, they cross to make pink centred and white tipped flowers (or sometimes reversed), then if the hybrid crosses with a pink (in some cases this occurs in the initial cross) they make mauve flowers.

    I have crossed them myself with "pure sourced seed", e.g. some areas are isolated and only make the one colour, so I collected wild seed from these localities and started crossing.

    Another interesting thing is that there are many indica physical variances, not just flower morphology, some localities are stunted, some are giant (2feet being no shock), others are slender, some heavy built, and even 3-4 generations on in cultivation they hold these traits.

    I have recently sown some indica orange seed and am hoping to make a few crosses.

    Now I have a question, I have white and pink flowered Spathulata, but I have never tried to cross them, would they have the same effect?

    Cross a white and pink flowered spat, and the result will usually be a lighter pink flower. I've done this with spatulata 'Tamlin' x "Royal National Park, Sydney" and x "Beenak, Victoria" as well as growing the Ivan's 3-way cross which was done for a similar purpose.
