    No. Its not that simple. Its more like 1 + 1 = 2.5 in that - as a rule - hybrids are often capable of tolerating conditions that exceed the extremes of either parent, even when both are highland types, for example. Its as if by crossing two distinct species you end up expanding the capacity of both species to adapt to conditions that diverge from the norm for either. I'm speaking in generalities, of course; there are always exceptions.

    So, it can tolerate slightly warmer then?
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Old thread, but bump.



    Burbidgeae x robcantleyi from BE and a veitchii x burbidgeae from EP.

    The veitchii x burbidgeae in that picture is a basal shoot from a larger plant I ordered (woohoo, 2 for 1!) so I know what that one will turn out like, but I'm curious to see how robcantleyi hybrid turns out and how much they'll differ.
