Cultivars and Stories
Below are cultivars created at Cal State Fullerton's Biological Sciences Greenhouse Complex
Carnivorous Plant Cultivars
- Dionaea X 'Jaws' A really cool hybrid between two types of Venus' Flytrap
- Pinguicula X 'Titan' A large hybrid between P. macrophylla and P. agnata (CSUF fragrant form)
- Adenium X 'David L. Walkington' A floriferous hybrid between the Mombassa form and a upright form of Adenium obesum, the latter with white flowers with a distinct red edge.
Many other cultivars have been produced, but have not been informally or formerly named. We are in the process of evaluating them for future naming. Watch this page for future additions.
Stories Out of School
Below is a series of short essays written by Leo C. Song Jr. on "how we did it' with respect to:
Dorstenia gigas , a succulent fig from Socotra Island
Dendrosicyos socotrana , a tree squash extraordinaire
Welwitschia mirabilis , a plant seemingly from another planet (Tatooine?)
Boswellia carteri ; frankincense, anyone?
