  1. Hi all, it´s no wonder after i was able to cross D. ascendens ("Bandeira Peak") with D. tomentosa var. tomentosa (´Morro Do Jambeiro, Minas Gerais, Brazil´) some time ago that the reciprocal crossing should work as well. I waited with showing pictures of that crossing until the plants have grown up to majority. So here are the resulting plants of D. tomentosa var. tomentosa x ascendens. In my eyes the plants look almost identical, the leaf shape, the hainess on the lower side of the leafes, the size of the plants and the hairness of the flower scapes seem to be almost the same. Only the colouration is a little bit different. I wonder if the flowers will also look identical but it will take some time until the first flowers will open. Here is the link to the plants i showed last year (D. ascendens x tomentosa var. tomentosa) where you can also see how the parents look like: D. ascendens x tomentosa var. tomentosa And here are the pictures of D. tomentosa var. tomentosa x ascendens and for comparison i took also some pictures of D. ascendens x tomentosa var. tomentosa side by side to the new crossing. on the left is the new crossing and again alone Best regards, Dani
  2. Hi all, and here is my next one. About two years ago i crossed D. camporupestris ´Serra do Cipó, Minas Gerais´ with D. spiralis ´Itacambira, Minas Gerais´ and it worked. Two of the plants seem to be adult now and they are going to flower, the leafes are about 12cm long. The flower stalks are really very wooly. On the first sight they look very similar to D. spiralis but the leafes are much more flat in comparison to D. spiralis, additionally the colouration is not the same and in the middle of the leafes they are wider. And another big difference are the long petioles, they are about 4cm long and they are very hairy. The biggest plants already formed a short stem of about 1-2cm. To me these plants look totally intermediate between these two species, what do you think? Here are some pictures of the "father": D. spiralis And now D. camporupestris x spiralis the next plant is going to flower I hope you like it. Best regards, Dani
