    This means that my plant is SG, too. Super cool! I also was told originally that it was TC.
    Lil Stinkpot is stoked.

    Weird I can't imagine why the rumor that there were any TC plants would have manifested itself so early.

    Ever since I first heard about these plants it was known that they were all seedlings and that any TC plants were a looong ways off.

    I think people would have expected so many SG seedlings from this cross (and there were a lot). It must be due to the large size of the parent flowers...


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    My confusing came from the vendor that as selling this hybrid. Had this vendor provided accurate information on their site flare ups like this wouldn't exsist.

    I've seen a few references to this species as a hybrid. Why?

    Even if you were to reject the premise of the new species, N. robcantleyi, the fallback is that both parents were black (or royal) truncata. Either way, both parents are the same species....

    All that comes to mind is the parentage being written into the name on occasion. queen of hearts x king of spades tagged on the end


    legitimate sources wouldn't call it a hybrid simply due to this but I can see it causing some confusion amoung hobbyists.

    There are other therioes. I am no expert, don't claim to be and not even going to pretend to know more than a lot of people here. I'll replace the above with" this plant". if others who have used the same term repeatly wants to jump in and explain....feel free.

    Well there was some speculation that robcantleyi is a hybrid between truncata and maybe a black veitchii or even an undiscovered or extinct species either way event if its a hybrid who cares its an awesome plant. It might be an ancient hybrid that has speciated
