    I crossbred capensis wide and 'Albino', capensis wide and intermedia 'Cuba', and intermedia 'Cuba' and dielsiana. All the seeds are viable and have germinated. I will not know if the cross really took until they develope some size. I can say that the last cross is not germinating like the other two. The seedlings are slow to develope and much thickier than those of the other two crosses.

    Oh, this mad scientist stuff is so exciting.

    Hi Copper,

    Sounds fun! Did you remove immature anthers beforehand to ensure a true cross?

    Can't wait to see what comes out!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Oh fun. Your current results make sence since the second cross is about as distantly related as you can get without changing root types. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] It could be that the ones to germinate with the think cuticle are actually 4n's insted of 2n's... er well since you used intermedia if the intermedia is a resent one as oppose to a fully speciated one it could be called a 6n o_O but for simplicity lets just say "oh, I wonder if any are 4n!"

    LOL

    That would be awsome if you lucked out and got a 4n! A couple of self pollinations later and you got yourself an instant new species [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] fun fun! I can not wait untill I get enough mature plants to do stuff like this.

    BTW, the seedlings you sent me are all thriving, but I think one of the ones we thought were spats is actually a D. rotundifolia. Would that be possible or did you send out a spat varient with oblongish leave tips?

    Yes, one was somewhat oblong.

    Noah, I was very careful with the pollination and removed the anthers, but still do not feel sure. I am sure there is something different with the intermedia x diel, but of course they may not survive. Here's hoping.

    Well, so far so good. The capensis typical x albino are doing well. I wonder if they will be pink? The intermedia x capensis are also doing well. The intermedia x dielsiana are still growing, but very slowy. They are deffinately different from they two mother plants.
