    Unhappy

    Anyone know if D.Capensis and D.Spatulata can be successfully crossed? Anyone know if it's worth the effort?
    Mine are flowering (when are they not? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] ), and I kinda want to try it out.

    Ivan says the cross has been made, but it is sterile.

    Tamlin have you used colchicine yet? Has any body else here used it? Do you know of a company that sells it?


    Thanks

    I have no experience with this form of experimentation, but if you are interested I suggest you contact Ivan Snyder regarding this, as he is Da Man. You should be able to reach him through the LACPS, of which he is president.

    Colchicine is a powerful mutagen, and should be treated with all the respect a deadly poision deserves including prior education on the health risks and proper methods of handling it. It's serious stuff.

    Tamlin isn't kidding, colchicine is EXTREMELY dangerous, if you don't have a lab and equipment, then stay very far away from it. The ICPS website has some information on it also.
