D. tomentosa var. glabrata x riparia

Recommended Posts

Hello together,

and here is the next one, it´s D. tomentosa var. glabrata x riparia.
I know, nothing special after the hybrid between D. tomentosa var. tomentosa and riparia worked.
Of course the plants look nearly identical.
I have sown them out 13 months ago and some of the plants seem to be mature now, in fact this hybrid also seems to be a relatively fast and easy grower, the biggest plants about 4cm in diameter.
Because of feeding this new hybrid is more greenish for the moment but this for sure will change.
The D. tomentosa var. glabrata is from ´Serra Do Caraça, Minas Gerais´, D. riparia is from ´Chapada Diamantina, Mucugê, Bahia´.

In the leaf apex D. tomentosa var. glabrata ´Serra Do Caraça´ has longer tentacles with a rectangular head, this hybrid also has them as you can see in these pictures.

Fantastic!!! I just hope these never escape into the wild, or we taxonomist will be screwed! :)

@Wolfgang, of course more pictures of hybrids will follow.

 

 

Meanwhile the first flower stalk is visible and of course this time it´s not hairy at all.
