and here is the next one.
Last year i menaged to cross D. spiralis ´Diamantina, Minas Gerais´ with D. tomentosa var. tomentosa ´Morro do Jambeiro, Minas Gerais´. The germination rate was relatively high but the seedlings grew really slowly and they have been very weak so i lost all of them except this single plant which is now nearly adult.
The plant is about 4cm in diameter and it has erect leafes, i would have expected it a little bit bigger after D. spiralis was the motherplant.
The lower side of the leafes is hairy and the flower stalk is very similar to the scapes of D. tomentosa var. tomentosa.
Here are the parents:
and D. tomentosa var. tomentosa ´Morro do Jambeiro, Minas Gerais, Brazil´ (an older picture)
And now the hybrid:
D. spiralis x D. tomentosa var. tomentosa
I hope you like them.
