    I am a sucker for ventricosa hybrids for some reason. My growlist is fairly skewed in the ventricosa direction.

    You could say that. I wouldn't taint my 10" hamata with much of anything other than macro, villosa, and x TM. Spectabilis, veitchii, or truncata might be a cool cross too. And I could care less about ventricosa, or hybrids of it. I own one vent hybrid (vent x spec).. and that's only because it has a striped peristome.

    I hear ya. I've only recently begun to warm-up to ventricosa crosses. My first love (for hybrids) are still xTrusmadiensis crosses.

    Oh c'mon! ventricosa rocks! It makes everything less edgy and refined.

    Here is what spongebob looks like crossed with N. ventricosa! LOL

    I Like ventricosa hybrids, but most are rather dull, I only like the really flashy ones, since I grow on my windowsill, the ventricosa gives them a bit more durability.

    I'm right there with carn - I'm not too keen on vent hybrids, but sometimes it adds something that would really make the plant ugly otherwise... like N.ventricosa x x trusmadiensis - there isn't a person I've heard of that *doesn't* like xSabre! Or for that matter N.xPeter D'amato.

    haha.. dash, you crack me up. But nevertheless, you said the issue yourself. "It makes everything less edgy.." In other words, it ruins everything IMHO. So.. I have no interest in a tainted hamata cross.
