If any of you Astro loving folks have access to facebook, look up a guy by the name of Damiano Sergi. His profile is here https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1577266496 Go to the AGOSTO 2010 Album
It appears he's successfully produced hybrids of A. myriostigma and Digitostigmata that has traits of both plants, very strange looking and the first I've seen. . Most people I've heard of who have tried have come away with a plain plant like just one of the parents..
Sorry but I can't post the pictures here as it might get the forum in trouble...should be easy enough to find though...

Cool looking plant I have seen similar plants before. One in particular was from a German collector, I will see if I can find a pic for yas.
