    bellii truncata and densiflora truncata

    just got a couple new nep's.
    any ideas on what conditions you would grow these in.
    bellii x truncata King of Spades, ... and densiflora x King of Clubs.

    intermediate, but possibly highland. I have a large truncata "lowland" that grows just fine on my windowsill which has highland conditions.

    Good luck, I'd grow them as an intermediate.

    Carn: I betcha BE crossed the King with a bunch of other plants for some interesting hybrids when he was in flower.They probably didn't cross the Queen because then the black truncata seed would get mixed up with hybrid seed.

    I'd say that with a truncata hybrid, I'd grow them as intermediates.

    King of Clubs is just another male clone of truncata that is dark colored.....the hybrids are legit and for sale....

    Rattler- I didn't know they had other hybrids with them, and I also didn't know there was also a King of Clubs. Thanks for clearing it up.
