Subject: Lost ping hybrids ?

Hello all,

While browsing the excellent archives of the bulletin of the French
carnivorous plant growers association Dionee, I've found this article
describing the germination of a P.caudata x P. grandiflora and a P. caudata
x P.vulgaris...

Since I had never heard or seen any picture of an hybrid between a tropical
and a temperate ping, I would like to know if such hybrids are easy to
obtain or was it luck, and are they still in cultivation ?

For reference, the article (in French...) can be found at
