I would try splendens before you move on to the more sensitive wilds (although I believe that imbellis is a good first wild. Talk to setsuna, darth, or littlebettafish about wilds.). What exactly do you mean by "purple dragon"? Generally, people want nicely colored bettas that are as near show quality as possible. Halfmoon and halfmoon plakat are among the most popular. To get this, you have to start with a nice pair. Aquabid.com is a great place to get breeding pairs but be careful who you buy through. Lots of selection to.
Alright, I Think I Will Stick To Splendens, But I Want To Create A Nice Fish! I Will Probably Go For HMPK! Check Out bluemoonbetta.wordpress.com I Have My Supplies That I Will Get Listed There! Thinking Of Buying From: http://www.bettaakapes.com/.

So you have all of that stuff? You need at way more then 12 jars. Think 100+. You also need a heater for every tank that has a betta or betta fry in it, no exceptions. Nice hmpk aren't hard to find on aquabid.
Bettas types are all the same difficulty when it comes to breeding, but some individuals are more willing then others. There's really no such thing as a "rare" type of splenden, but I don't really know what you mean.
If you are thinking of breeding to make money on something 'rare' think again. You will easily put in two times the money you will ever make back from selling spawn. Once you get to be a great breeder you will even be lucky to break even.
If your intentions are not to profit from this then simply breed what you like. What colors and tail types are your favorite?
^ agree.. depends on what your breeding goal is. But you have to start somewhere.. there are still things missing from your list, lots and lots of things - but it's a start. No money to gain breeding these fish - it's a hobby people do out of love for the species. Only way to be business about it is to set up a farm somewhere in Asia and mass produce. :) Otherwise, as mentioned, breed what you like - people will buy it as long as they are healthy.
