To answer your question Nathaniel, they aren't really cultivars that I made. *What I did was sow large numbers of seeds that were harvested from a normal speckled N. ampullaria. *(We have done this with quite a few other species too). *Some of the seeds are sown in sterile culture but the vast bulk of them are sown in trays in a ramshackle old lowland nursery (the first we built here in '97):
The seeds germinate and compete with each other. *They get one shot of Osmacote fertilizer in their lives and then that's it. *I hardly ever go in there, once a month perhaps. *It's like wading through a jungle and sometimes some gems appear. *These gems are then taken away to a more organized nursery to begin a new life.
I guess I ought to register these particular N. ampullaria as cultivars with the ICPS though.
By the way, if anyone would like to come over and sort this nursery out they would be very welcome *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] *I have to say though that it's a bit "snakey". *The odd cobra and venomous viper have been known *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]
