I have seedlings of Sinningia araneosa to share and tiny seedlings of Diastema latiflorum that definitely will need another few months before they're ready to ship...

Other than that, I have cuttings of Seemannia nematanthodes and Sinningia macrostachya.

I also can check my pot of Gloxinia erinoides 'Red Satin' for rhizomes.

The Chautemsia is the one that I am after as well and since I currently have absolutely no time to tend to even more seedlings than I already have, will remain on the wish list for the time being... :)

The is true for the xGlokohlerias, xPhinastema 'California Dreaming' etc. A lot of those rhizomatous intergenerics seem to be hard to come by.

Thanks Jan. I might not like it after I get it but I still want to try.

bsimpson...I have tried really hard to find more of the intergenerics. About the time it seems impossible, I run across another one. I'll keep looking and grabbing them as I find them.
I've had xSmithicodonia Heartland's Joy in bloom almost all summer and xGloximannia She's Dancing is just now producing its first buds. You can bet I'll be propogating the heck out of these when they are finished. I had them in the greenhouse all summer and they loved it so I am hoping to find a bunch of rhizomes in those pots as I would like to have enough to fill a 6" pot of each of those.

However the heat did a number on some things...got very tiny rhizomes from the kohleria's that were out there. While they grew and bloomed wonderfully, they didn't produce the nice fat rhizomes they usually do. I am hoping the ones inside did better but I'm not counting on it.

Anyway...I sent you a private note about the things you do have.
