    No hamata X tenuis left - they all died last winter. The greenhouse is now too warm for them.
    And yes, I seem to recall making that cross a few years ago. Got photos of yours?

    If this plant was grown from wild collected seeds, then it is astronomically unlikely that it has any highland species genes in it. I think you'll find its just N. mirabilis once it matures.
