Hybridize - A project in progress - This is a very long term project, with unpredictable results - as an extension of the Classification work - the concept is to cross-pollinate some of my Bromeliad collection, germinate and then grow the seed on to maturity over 4 -5 years, observe what eventuates and then name the new hybrids after fossil fuel machines - this also becomes a link to the Plant Room
