When I first started collecting I would take any plant I could get. I still own 4 of Gubler's hybrids from Home Depot. Shortly thereafter I only wanted species. Today, with more reasonable prices, hybrid vigor and interesting crosses available, I am developing more interest in hybrids. Plus I already own most of the inexpensive highland species. Two of my most interesting plants are hybrids. Probably because the interesting species I own are still small. But I still want to get a real macfarlanei as mine is looking like a hybrid with sanguinea.
Is this a normal progression in collecting? What do you people think?
