Hello all
This is a new plant I received from bergen water gardens in New York. Plant arrived in 2 days! Only downside was that I didn’t get any tracking.
But I will definitely buy from them again no question.

The size also does seem to be medium. Probably won’t buy from another source for a while because the mediums I got are some of my smallest plants.


Densiflora x Rafflesiana BE-3719

Sweet Milk!! Looks a very nice sized plant. Do you happen to know if Hybrid Neps will produce fertile seed? I read recently that hybrids are infertile. I was hoping to one day get flowers on my plants but if that's true it gives me more reason to get some pure plants.

I’m pretty sure hybrids still produce fertile seeds. How else would exotica plants and redleaf get all they’re paragraph long named hybrids!

Would have to look into it though.

There are rumors that a few of the more popular commercial hybrids have fertility issues (x 'ventrata', x 'miranda') but outside of those nearly all hybrids at least have the potential to breed. Certain species crossings supposedly produce more viable seed than others, though.
