I've been thinking alot about orchid hybrids lately. Everyone is always
trying to make a bigger flower, different colors, etc. It then dawned on
me that I had no idea what the trends are in CP. So what are the trends?
Bigger pitchers? Or is everyone working to make nicer flowers on these
interesting little plants that we are growing. Have any intergeneric
hybrids been created (ie Sarrs and VFT, etc)? This is common in orchids
but I have no idea how common in general.
