A relatively recent cross registeed by our own Mr. Cym in 2009 (which means it was made in 2004?), this is Billion Dollar Baby x dayanum. It has no registered offspring, which means Andy probably didn't find the cross worthy to breed on with.

No, it means it is a sterile triploid!

That was the other thought, but I wasn't certain.

If I could take back half of the stupid things that I said, I would have probably said only half as much.

My dayanum is just starting to bloom. But, this puts it to shame. Nice plant and nice pic!

Love the self framing clap .

Andy, why do triploids produce often better flower form than 4n flowers?
