THIS LISTING IS GROWERS CHOICE - PLEASE READ ENTIRE LISTING
This hybrid was made purely for fun and so far it has exceeded our wildest expectations. The seed took nearly a year to ripen, and hands down these have been the slowest seedlings of any cross we have made to date to grow. It was not until we moved the seedlings into warmer conditions that they suddenly started to grow and the results have been very exciting.
The mother plant was given to us as a gift as an undescribed species. The presentation was absolutely superb with very elongated dark green leaves with some interesting white veining. Sadly the mother plant did not survive our "Extended stay" in Africa at the onset of COVID, but we still have a stump which we are hoping will one day sprout again for us as the stem and roots are still green and healthy. We asked a few people if they had any idea what the plant might be, all came back as unknown but Jay Vannini said it was identical to what he calls a naturally occurring Hybrid Swarm involving rioclarense as a parent (IT IS NOT RIOCLARENSE WILD HYBRID!) We made two crosses with the plant and this one is producing the most extraordinary long leaves, but we still have no idea what it will look like when mature. We have set quite a few of these aside for further assessment just because the results so far have been so unexpected.
This listing is for growers choice and plants will be fulfilled from the largest to the smallest on a first come first serve basis. We will also select plants based on desirable attributes we identify.
