I'll be keeping my eye on this hybrid as it develops.  This one plant has a little pup coming that looks to be a bit stoloniferous.  Not sure where this trait would have come from looking at the parents.  Most likely it is just an anomalous one-off and not really a 'stolon', but certainly worth watching.

Interesting plant Andy. Would be very cool if it starts clumping up   Tongue

What size is it?

Yeah, I'm not expecting it to be all that exciting.  All potential will probably rely on pupping/clumping habit.  And the novelty of the inflorescence.  It is in a 4" pot and just about filling it out.  The biggest two from the grex are that size with another ~4 or so that seem to be staying smaller (but already pupping).  If it does form short stolon-like pups it might make an interesting shaped clump.  I can't wait to see my hybrids with the stoloniferous Hechtias develop...

Ah, Devo, I think I figured it out.  The pollen parent (a form of Deuterocohnia longipetala) was crowded in a pot...as well as all of the head splitting it was producing some pups from underneath that were coming off on stolons. Very peculiar.  I haven't seen this on my other forms of Deu. longipetala.  Kind of cool that this trait would carry over to the seedlings even at this stage.  So it might have some potential to actually keep doing it!

 Grin Yes, great potential, and very cool that that trait has been passed to the seedlings.

I've observed Ochagavia litoralis do that stolon thing as well. Their normal way of propagating is to produce multiple pups around the mother...but occasionally they will send out a long stolon.

Keep us updated on progress with this one Andy.
