I am working on hybridizing caladiums also.
Looks like most of it is done in Thailand. No telling as they also supplied the varigated ferns with the chemical added. I still don't know who came up with that blue dye they added to the Phalaenopsis orchids.

Bill, are your goals commercialization, or are you just doing it for fun?

My goals are the challenge and the fun. Not making money. I am to old for that and if i would make anything the government would find a way to get it.

Bill, I just got home from a trip and found a huge seed pod on one of my caladiums. Guess I'll try and grow a few.
