I actually dont know who made this cross. I was told before, but I forgot. I dont even know who mom and dad is though we can assume Domingos Martins is one of them. I find out.

Nope, not mine, Gonz. In fact that was one I was meaning to pick up from Michael, but I forgot. It was one of the few Bills that really caught my eye when I was there. Obviously a DM hybrid, but with a narrow profile that's very unique. Anyone know the other parent?

RE: Pretty!

So I have a question about all of these fancy, super-spotty bills...how variable are they (spot saturation-wise)? It seems like they have a lot of similarities but you guys can pick them out quite easily. And the trick to keep that great spotting and strong color do they take pretty strong light and no fertilizer?
