    What about to cross Lemna (any species) and Amorphophallus titanum? I
don't know about chromosomal compatibility, but they are really close
relatives (see French's work on restriction sites). The main question to ask
is: Will this thing still float on the water surface during its flowering?
Sorry guys, I couldn't resist... :o)
