  Re: Hybrids

Neil Carrol wrote about hybrids and I have to say that one of our clones of
Anthurium dressleri, which is a selfing of the clonotype, grows far easier
than the original plant collected from the wild. Sometimes selection via
sibling crosses or selfing of species can provide some additional vigor or
horticultural improvements not known in the parent(s). One does not
necessarily need to resort to hybridizing different species to get
interesting results. It is also true that the hybrids of Anthurium dressleri
are indeed much easier to grow and some of these hybrids are exceptional
