Hi i was wondering if I could crossbreed th spit rock and the baby toe plant since there both succulents in the same family and flower around the same time I think it would be a cool hybrid and I wonder if it is possible.

I just had a major conclusion what I reed as them blooming in summer actually Ment one bloomed in late spring to early summer and the other late summer and early summer so there's gonna be the extra complication of trying to preserve the pollen for 2 months

That''s going to complicate things. Maybe its also the reason no one else has done it. Crying

I will still try I can probaly wait till the split rock flowers preserve the pollen and then wait till the baby toes flower months later I read something online saying they can preserve it for a year so I think I'll be fine

Well I just found out something about cross breeding they can't just be in the same family they have to be in the same genus so this whole thing is done but I found a different variety of spit rock and I'm gonna crossbreed them so I'll make a new post and leave updates there ok bye
