Before we all get too excited about intergeneric hybrids 'proving'
that two genera should be merged it's wort recalling the number of
intergeneric hybrids in the orchids, especially the vandoid orchids,
where I believe up to seven genera (maybe more - I'm a tad out of
date) have been used to make a commercial hybrid including crosses
involving Phalaenopsis and Vanda.
and the NAMES you have to make up for them!
you might know this already and not even care...but the position
among the Liliaceae of Sansevieria is still being debated hotly by
the 12 people who care.
I am slightly terrified of orchid breeders.
