Okay I have this on GP..but will put it here for anyone interested. Our mother plant came from a friend, whose brother apparently went in with others to acquire the infamous..seeds from BC. I have never had an experience with any seed bank or seed source, so I cannot comment on them in any way. Our mother is no longer with us, but was probably two months or more... She was in some form of rockwool, broken up medium, I am not familiar with and grown from a clone taken off the first plant, grown from seed. I have no idea what the friend used in terms of nutes. His growing conditions were not so good, but indoors... Day #1 12/13/2009 Elephant Purple, two plants, one adult and one teen came to my house...My b/f who does all the initial cutting of clones took about 15 starts off of the tall plant, and using clone x, placed in the EZ Cloner. They took longer than normal to develop roots. Generally my plants take no less than 7 days and no more than 14 days, but she took about 3 weeks. These are photos of the mother.
