Hybrid

Here’s all the species and other hybrid plants which we currently sell at Freaky Cacti. In botany, a “hybrid” is a plant that is produced by the cross-breeding of two genetically different varieties or species. This process is known as hybridisation. To create a hybrid plant, pollen is exchanged between two parent plants, naturally by insects and other animals, artificially by human gardeners. More specifically, the male part (stamen) of one plant’s flower pollinates the female part (the pistil) of another flower. The resulting fruits will have hybridised seeds that can then be grown out.

There are two types of hybridisation, based on the taxonomic relationships of the two parents. The first is intervarietal hybridisation, where the parents are of the same species, such as two strains, varieties, or races of the same species. The second is distant hybridisation, where the parents are of different species or genera. Crosses involving parents of multiple, distinct genera are also known as bi-generic, intergeneric and intergenus hybrids. Why not browse through all of the hybrids we sell and explore the new possibilities for your own collection?
