Rob Bower ... "Two pics of Tooshi (from JO - parents being juncea x schiedeana) and also two of 'juncea x schiedeana' which has on its label that its natural hybrid. They are very similar but the flower spike of the 'natural hybrid' is not smooth like Tooshi. I am wondering if anyone knows about the natural hybrid - or is it just a remake of Tooshi?"
Chris Larson ... "Sort of right John. T. Tooshi is T. schiedeana x (T. schiedeana X juncifolia) by Rolly Reilly - so a man-made hybrid. I always thought it strange that the three way cross was registered with a cv name, but not the 2 way - possibly as this is a Nat Hyb"
Ed. ... "Bird Rock Tropicals is selling "juncea x schiedeana as a natural hybrid, TX057 from Costa Rica", this has now been captured in the BCR as T. 'Little Star'. Rolly Reilly's cross (Tooshi) was probably the natural hybrid crossed back onto schiedeana again. See Detective Derek schiedeana article DD0912"
