A nice wee species

Hi Daffnetters,
This is a delightful wee species grown from imported seed. My mind has been inventing crosses for it, seems to me to need some split corona pollen. Has anyone attempted a cross like that?
Your thoughts are welcome.

    We have been doing miniature split crosses for a few years now. We can do both fertile and sterile crosses. We have split cup forms of N. cordubensis, N. watieri and N. rupicola to work with along with our fertile miniature seedlings and a large range of intermediate seedlings of various split forms. We flowered our first micro miniature fertile split cup this year. We can breed all forms and all colours.
    Kind regards
