    N. lowii x campanulata...seed-grown or TC??

    I heard a rumor a few months ago that the N. lowii x campanulata hybrids from Exotica Plants were tissue cultured. I originally thought they were seed-grown (as are most of the hybrids from EP). Can anyone confirm or deny this rumor??

    Well I emailed them once before about something else and never heard back. Maybe you'll have better luck, haha.

    It's entirely possible that they grew seeds in tissue culture. I could see how that would lead to confusion.

    I've seen quite a bit of variance in this cross. If indeed they TC'd them, they must have several lines of clones.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'll try to think positively and tell myself they're seed-grown.
