At long last my efforts of my own hybridization have been rewarded with my long waited ex-vitro hybrid heli , it should stay this colour even get darker as its only been in low light so with higher sun light its possible !! it may get a lot darker with age ,well that's the hoping it will ,didn't want to pull this out just yet but got a contam in the jar so it had to come out , (its not the first but the first of this hybrid ).

yes that what its aimed at ,the colour I mean , see how it goes over the next few months , the test will be from acclimatisation to G/H sun , got quite a few more to come yet different hybrids and specie i mean , few super fast growing ones too , should be interesting

have some bad news , the plant died from coming out prematurely from some contamination and not being acclimatized right , now have perfected that acclimatization process , am growing more of these guys as we write , but there not quite looking the same colour, wouldn't you know it !!
the new red heli developing with good colour
H.ionasii looking well to
could be a interesting plant ,grows fast to H.hetro x ionasii x foliculata

just wrong time to take it out , but didn't have a choice, with contamination ,it dies from contams or dies from taking out at wrong time , ,it was going ok in the lab till i had to take it out to green house, when i though i had acclimatized it well enough in the lab, just not so ! now i do it differently and success rate is 90% or more .
yes new hybrids coming all the time , some will be just ordinary other mite be spectacular , have to wait and see
