Platycerium hybrids

solo78November 26, 2008

Hi all,

Can Platycerium hybrids produce viable spores and will the spores produce offspring that are the same as the parent or will they display variation?

If I would like to hybridise 2 species of Platycerium, do I simply sew the spores together in the same container?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I would recommend mixing the spores on a sheet of paper first. Then dust it evenly over the media.
