Ventricosa x hamata hybrid highland conditions

by plantfreak1 » Fri Apr 12, 2013 10:56 pm

Can this hybrid handle intermediete or even lowland conditions? Or would highland conditions be required? This is a big factor for me getting this plant. Help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Both Hamata and Ventriosa are highlanders and I personally would not attempt to grow then in low-land conditions, you might be ok in intermediate conditions.

Speedy, I know ventricosa is a very adaptable highlander, so im hoping that intermediete conditions will work. It seems happy in my house just about anywhere :D
I was hoping that this hybrid would be more tolerant as most hybrids are. Has anybody grown this specific plant before?
Thanks.
