Barry’s was posted a little while back and has been registered as T. Kylie Maree, with T. deppeana confirmed as the pollen donor. My appenii hybrid/s have unknown donors - I do remember using various pollen sources and there is a fair variety of rosette forms in the batch. It’s far too long ago though that I wrote the label to remember the culprits. It eventually disintegrated on the mount. One might have been T. guatemalensis. It wasn’t until I decided to pot the seedlings that they took off so 90% of their growth was in the last few years. Any suggestions as to what the pollen might have come from are welcome."
