I actually misread your comment, and edited my post.. check it out.
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.
True. It is never as good as the real thing, but similar.
