Cryptanthus Genuineus
cv. of acaulis v. genuineus (F-2?) by Antle, S.
Sold as "Genuinensis". How can one have an F2 of a species??
DB says genuineus means genuine. i.e. acaulis var acaulis.
Geoffrey Lawn says "I think yours is more likely the caulescent C. warren-loosei 'Arautiac' or a bahianus hybrid. Certainly the current label is "suss" !"
