    Seeds I've made...

    So I've made a bunch of boschiana x campanulata and thorellii x campanulata hybrid crosses over the years - mostly with platychila, possibly by ventricosa x inermis. I might have sent out some ovata by maybe spectabilis x talangensis or ventricosa x inermis or something too. I forget by now I've made so many hahaha... anyway, I was interested in seeing how they're turning out if anyone has a pile of plants sprouted from them by now? I haven't come across too many pictures of them over the years yet. Pics appreciated! I auctioned off the only one I had sprouted on NASC this year so all my green-kids are out there living their lives now.

    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    You sent me some aristo x diatas seed a year or two ago. I actually did get germination on them but sadly, they never shed their seed coats for some reason.

    Hmmm... I don't think that would have been me because my aristo is male, unless it would have been something I was passing along.

    I know Dexenthes was kind enough to facilitate giving away some of my seeds too, so they might have come through him.

    One of the things I feel bad about was one of my campy crosses (either thor x campy or bosch x campy) I crossed with pollen from Tony P's pectinata x campy pollen, and he had half the seed as is proper. I don't know if they survived the disaster, but I sure do hope so. I hope whoever got seeds from my half got some germination out of them because it would be a wonderful plant.
