Genlisea violacea x hispida

Recommended Posts

Have seen this plant sold on Extreme-Plants (misnamed G. violacea x hispidula?) but haven't seen any information about this hybrid on CPPF. Is this hybrid real?

The correct name is G.hispidula, not G.hispida. This is an African species of section Genlisea, whereas G.violacea is from section Tayloria and is Brazilian.

I've never heard of this hybrid being made and I don't see it on the CP Photo Finder.

I would be surprised if it is possible at all and would bet this is probably just a case of mislabeled plant.

Best wishes,

Fernando

cz-plants is selling the same plants.

there is an utricularia hispida, a slip of the pen, i think.

i have G. lobata x violacea and has the same flowers as the plants at extremeplants.

send them a mail.

just had a mail from extreme-plants, it's violacea x hispidula, created in the czech republic.

The plant on the photo shown on extreme plants is G. lobata x violacea.

I have never heard of a hybrid of G. violacea x hispidula and do not believe.

I think it's just dislabeled.

Cheers,

Markus

Then it's probably bogus.

I truly don't believe it's possible to make any crosses between members of subgen.Tayloria and subgen.Genlisea.

And I would not recommend anyone waste their money buying seeds of such claims.
