    My first cuthbertsonii hybrid, D. gonzalesii x cuthbertsonii. Small plant under 10 cm, flower ca. 3 cm wide, blooms 2 times/year on each mature growth.
    I've back crossed it with an orange cuthbertsonii pollen, to get an even more cuthbertsonii-like result while keeping some hybrid vigor; the plantlets are growing nicely in flasks!

    Marni,

    the foliage is very cuthbertsonii-like, covered with prominent warts. here is a bad picture of the whole plant:
