Quadrigeneric, trigeneric and bigeneric again!!!
I donât know what happened to my topic was lost. I have to post this again.
In middle of last year, I talked about crossing xQuesistrumâClaudiaâ with unknown xNeomea (Maybe xNeomea exquisite) to create Quadrigeneric hybrids. There is only a few seedlings left. Here are 3 largest seedlings of the batch now show up the potential of Canistrum fosterianum the parent of xQues.âClaudiaâ I had talked with Lisa about nothogenous of this hybrids. She said Iâd have to create a new name using my last name. My last name is Chayangsu. This plant should name xChayangsuara.
The first has nice form and pattern of Canistrum fosterianum
The second and third doesnât show their potential.
At the same time, I also pollinated xQues.âClaudiâ with Ae.chantiniiâBlackâ. Now I have about 20 seedlings. Most has dark scurfy foliages. For nothogenous, I'm thinking xQuesistrumea would be the easiest for a cross between xQuesistrum and Aechmea.
The first has very nice dark foliages with black spines. I love this one.
The second and third are also nice.
I also crossed N.mooreana with Ae.chantiniiâBlackâ. I think of stripe plant of Ae.chantinii with curly foliage of N.mooreana. Now seedlings start showing what Iâm looking for. A lovely xNeomea.
